The Koch Brothers

June 7, 2011

The Koch Brothers have spent millions to found and fund think tanks and PACs.  They laid the groundwork for the rise of the Tea Party and had a massive influence on the 2010 midterm elections.  The Citizen’s United Supreme Court case in January may have opened the political donation floodgates.  As Bloomberg Washington DC Executive Editor Al Hunt told us ”It’s sometimes hard to distinguish between what their philosophical, personal and political agenda is and what their corporate agenda is. They often times overlap. They have spent a lot of money to promote anti-government, free enterprise, anti-regulation, lower taxes. That all benefits both their far-flung energy empire and themselves personally.”   We take a hard look at two of the most powerful people behind the scenes of American Politics on Bloomberg June 7th, 2011.

She was waiting on a delayed train when the story came to her like a bolt of lightning.  Later, after years of work, poverty, her mother’s untimely death, a broken marriage, single motherhood and being turned down by twelve publishers it became one of the most beloved and popular book and movie series of all time.  Here, we look at the insight, inspiration and phenomenal success of Harry Potter.

Our journey with Richard Branson

May 10, 2011

In 1972, Richard Branson signed an unknown folk musician named Mike Oldfield to his new company Virgin Records.  Oldfield’s was an odd instrumental album called “Tubular Bells” that ended up selling millions of copies and launching Virgin’s rise to one of the most successful independent labels of all time.  They eventually signed the Sex Pistols, the Rolling Stones, Culture Club, Human League, Janet Jackson and Peter Gabriel.

Now that his brand has spanned nearly 400 companies - including Virgin Airlines, Virgin Mobile and even Virgin Brides - Branson has become a billionaire many times over.  He has risked his life in self promotional balloon trips, is working on descending 36,000 feet below the ocean’s surface, and plans to take his mother into space.  We hung out with him for a day for Bloomberg Game Changers and he told us about the long, wild journey.

The show airs tonight 5/10/11 on Bloomberg Television, 6PM EST/9PM PST
