In the cover story, “Meet Big Brother” – How a 'deviant' philosopher built palantir, a CIA-funded data-mining juggernaut. . .

Also, “The Secret to Unleashing Genius” – Creative leaders can increase a company’s innovation capacity, but having someone at the top who is too much of a genius can be dangerous for the organization . . .

We'll also tell you “How Two Guys from Queens are Changing Drug Discovery” – Against the grain of industry trends, George Yancopolous and Leonard Schleifer, and their company Regeneron, have found ways to create effective new treatments on bargain budgets.

Then, “Daddy's Girl: How an African 'Princess' Banked $3 Billion in a Country Living On $2 a Day” – Isabel dos Santos's story is a rare window into the same, tragic kleptocratic narrative that grips resource-rich countries around the world.

Followed by, “The American Income Crisis: The FED Could Stop It” – The economy's poor performance is the result of policies that seem designed to make the rich richer and leave the middle class stagnant.

Next, “Ahead of Their Time: Noble Flops” – Rich Karlgaard says Timing is everything--especially in the development of revolutionary products.

And in our final story, “Think The NFL is in Decline Because of Head Trauma Issues? Think Again” – The NFL is awash in controversy stemming from a link between football and head injuries. It's also in its best financial shape ever.
