How does the recent rise of a super-rich stratum across much of Asia affect the politics of different countries? Are the ultra-affluent more likely to wield influence in democracies or in authoritarian regimes? Through what means and to what ends? An inter-disciplinary panel of experts on China, India and Southeast Asia will share observations and insights on this timely issue.
