Is Wall Street bad for Main Street America? In looking at the forces that brought our current administration to power one thing is clear: much of the population believes that our economic system is rigged to enrich the privileged elites at the expense of hard-working Americans. This is a belief held equally on both sides of political spectrum, and it seems only to be gaining momentum. A key reason, says Financial Times columnist Rana Foroohar, is the fact that Wall Street is no longer supporting Main Street businesses that create the jobs for the middle and working class. She draws on in-depth reporting and interviews at the highest rungs of business and government to show how the ´´financialization of America´´-the phenomenon by which finance and its way of thinking have come to dominate every corner of business-is threatening the American Dream. Now updated with new material explaining how our corrupted financial sys­tem propelled Donald Trump to power, Makers and Takers explores the confluence of forces that has led American businesses to favor balance-sheet engineering over the actual kind, greed over growth, and short-term profits over putting people to work. From the cozy relationship between Wall Street and Washington, to a tax code designed to benefit wealthy individuals and corporations, to forty years of bad policy decisions, she shows why so many Americans have lost trust in the sys­tem, and why it matters urgently to us all. Through colorful stories of both ´´Takers,´´ those stifling job creation while lining their own pockets, and ´´Makers,´´ businesses serving the real economy, Foroohar shows how we can reverse these trends for a better path forward.

Pennsylvania, 1737. Greta Scholtz braved a perilous journey-and the loss of her beloved father-to find religious freedom in America. With two orphan children she´s taken under her wing, she´s trying hard to survive this rugged new world. So she won´t let settlement elders pressure her into marrying reserved widower Jacob Miller.

Beth Hart ist nicht nur Feuer und Flamme, sondern reitet derzeit auch auf einer kreativen Flutwelle der Gezeiten. Die Alben der Grammy-nominierten Singer/Songwriterin werden von den Kritikern gefeiert. Sie arbeitet mit den absoluten Größen der Musikbranche zusammen und verzaubert ihr Publikum mit ihrer rauen und zugleich honigsüßen Stimme jeden Abend aufs Neue. Am 14.10.2016 veröffentlicht sie ihr neues Album ´´Fire On The Floor´´ bei Provogue, das selbst die sonst so selbstkritische Künstlerin als ´´verdammt gut´´ beschreibt. ´´Fire On The Floor´´ war für die kalifornische Sängerin wie ein emotionaler Befreiungsschlag. ´´Die zwölf Songs sind in gewisser Weise Eskapismus. Wir steckten noch tief in der Mixingphase für ´´Better Than Home´´, da wusste ich, dass ich ein weiteres Album aufnehmen musste. Der Produzent von ´´Better Than Home´´, Michael Stevens, starb damals an Krebs und es war es sehr schmerzhaft für mich, das Album zu schreiben und aufzunehmen. Daher wollte ich die Songs für ´´Fire On The Foor´´ möglichst schnell zum Leben erwecken.´´Beth wandte sich umgehend an den Produzenten Oliver Leiber, der sie zu einer Session in seinem Heimstudio in Toluca Lake einlud. Außerdem trommelte er die Studiocracks Michael Landau (Gitarre), Waddy Wachtel (Gitarre), Brian Allen (Bass), Rick Marotta (Schlagzeug), Jim Cox (Klavier), Dean Parks (Akustikgitarre) und Ivan Neville (Orgel und Hammond-Orgel) zusammen. Die zwölf neuen Songs reflektieren die vielseitigen musikalischen Einflüsse aus Beths Kindheit wieder. ´´Ich fühle mich eingeengt, wenn ich versuche, mich an nur einen Stil zu halten.´´, erklärt sie. ´´Früher hörte ich alles von Gospel über Soul, Klassik bis hin zu Rockbands wie Soundgarden. Es gibt so viele wunderbare Genres.´´´´Better Than Home´´ ist eines meiner besten Alben, doch es war auch eine brutale Erfahrung. ´´Fire On The Floor´´ hat mehr Energie und mehr Eier in der Hose.´´, schmunzelt sie. ´´Ich brauchte wirklich einen Ausgleich, ich musste dieses Album machen.´´ Und genauso müsst Ihr das Album hören. ´´Ich bin so zufrieden damit.´´, fasst sie zusammen. Vor kurzem musste ich die Reihenfolge der Songs festlegen. Während ich das tat, sagte ich zu mir selbst: ´´Hey, das ist echt verdammt gut geworden...!´´
