Marketplace’s Lizzie O’Leary speaks with Columbia University professor Jagdish Bhagwati about economies around the world. During our collaboration with the BBC,  Six Routes to Riches, we’ve visited six countries. Our reporters found some common themes such as mobility, infrastructure and China’s economy among them. For instance, if China stumbles, is the rest of the world tripped up?

“I don’t think so, because I don’t think any country has that kind of gravitas in the system,” says Bhagwati.  The economist also offers some advice about where, in his opinion, is the best place to make your fortune.
