China: the new Mandarins


Wang Dafu is a happy man. Starting with exactly nothing, this peasant from Hainan Island in China, has become a real estate magnate, and of course a millionaire.

In less than 10 years, Hainan, in southern China, has emerged from its tropical torpor to become a favorite destination for the emerging Chinese middle class.

Here is a China where someone’s new wealth isn’t necessarily made at the expense of others. A full speed expanding country where one can enjoy a luxurious lifestyle without fearing the wrath of the ruling Communist Party - which is in fact quite happy with the new economic boom.
