‘Changing Fortunes: New Patterns of Wealth’ is a new six part series for BBC World News, exploring the new patterns of wealth that have emerged over the last two decades. The fall of the Soviet Union, the liberalization of India and the opening of China have brought vast new markets into the global economy. The resulting commodities boom has created an explosion of wealth and the rapid development of the internet continues to generate new fortunes.
From the United States, to Brazil, Europe, Africa, India and China - the series meets some of the innovators, entrepreneurs and business success stories whose fortunes offer a window into our rapidly changing world.
