Hong WeiHua moved from scrap metal merchant to dollar billionaire in 30 years. His story is a microcosm of China's economic miracle. He talks frankly about his wealth, shows off some of his trophies and discusses the corruption trial that sent his business partner to jail. He explains how to legally buy influence with Chinese officials. Two other dollar billionaires frame the profile of Hong, giving context to his story. British researcher Rupert Hoogewerf, who started China's first rich list, completes the line-up, commenting on Hong and the difficulty in tracking wealth in China.
