The Middle Kingdom and the U.S. economy

In the poker match between President Donald Trump and China’s new all-but-emperor, Xi Jinping, it’s widely assumed that Xi holds the best hand. Yet President Xi’s hand may not be as awesome as it appears, while the United States, even under this very flawed president, may hold some fine cards. Of course, Xi wields power in a way that Trump could only dream about. He has close to total control over the media, academia and the business community. In a way not seen in my over three decades of trave...

How a group of guys from Moscow became an internationally renowned Chicago tribute band

Leonid Vorobyev says he loved the music of Chicago since the first time he heard the band as a teenager in Russia more than 40 years ago. A choir conductor by training, he’d also played in a handful of casual rock bands and spent 25 years as a recording studio sound engineer, too. So four years ago when Vorobyev approached 60, the age of retirement in Russia, he decided to celebrate by bringing together all the art and craft he’d worked so hard to master and make the best cover of a Chicago song...
