Here's a preview of this week's IBTimes Magazine:

 

One Millionaire's Audacious Plan 

To build a high-end, self-contained city in a conflict zone. Kate Shuttleworth visits the mega-development known as Rawabi under construction in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. 

Red, Redder, Reddest, Blue!

There is no violet in the future of conservative but high-minority states like Mississippi and Texas, where notoriously hyper-conservative electorates are likely to flip in the not-so-distant future. Ryan Nave reports. 

Gauging The Cultural Weight Of Investment

Nat Rudarakanchana looks at the trend toward private equity firms investing in socially conscious causes -- or divesting from dubious ones, with the Newtown shootings as an example. 

Ever Heard Of Bashkortostan?

How about its capital, whose catchy self-description is “The City of 52 Kilometers”? Joe Hammond explores the bitterly cold Russian region, the latest addition to the world’s list of oil-rich, terrorism-vulnerable states.
