In a partnership with the BBC, in a series called Six Routes to Riches, Lizzie O’Leary has been exploring what happens when the global economy collides with real life.

How do you make a better life? And what does that mean? This week, O’Leary is joined by the BBC’s Nkem Ifejika, who digs in to Nigeria’s economy. Ifejika grew up in Nigeria, and has watched the economy change and shift.

In coming weeks, we’ll also report from India, China, and the United States.

Next week, you’ll hear O’Leary’s own reporting from Brazil. O’Leary spent the past two weeks there, talking to the people at the top of the economic ladder.
