China was known as a bicycle kingdom, but today, luxury cars, private jets and brand new yachts are all part of what is becoming known as the Bling Dynasty. The rising wealth of China is minting a new billionaire almost every week. And it is no longer just the real estate tycoons. Young and ambitious entrepreneurs are racing each other to the top. In Beijing’s halls of power, the richest now have a bigger say than ever before.

On this month’s ‘On China’, CNN’s Kristie Lu Stout explores the world of China’s ultra-rich with Bain & Company Partner Alfred Shang, China Market Research Group Managing Director Shaun Rein, and New York Times correspondent Michael Forsythe. They discuss what all this wealth means for a country in the midst of an economic slowdown, and whether the Bling Dynasty can continue to shine under president Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign.
