For the first time in the history, there are more billionaires in Asia than America. According to the Super-Rich List by UBS and PricewaterhouseCoopers, 637 in Asia and 563 in the U.S., and among the Asian memberships of the utter wealthy club, China’s 318 billionaires are increasingly making their presence felt. But in what ways is this happening? Compared with billionaires in Europe and North America, what are the key characteristics of the new super-rich in Asia, especially in China? What influence will they exert on our society and values?

The Dialogue Studio invited Dr. Wang Huiyao, the President of Center for China and Globalization (CCG), Jiang Wenran, Senior fellow at Institute of Asian Research of University of British Columbia, and Robert Koepp, Director of Economist Corporate Network, to discuss the above issues.
