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. Join the Rajawali Foundation Institute for Asia, Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, Harvard University Asia Center, the Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute, and the Harvard Yenching Institute for the Harvard-Yenching Institute annual roundtable discussion.
