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.

“I think the best compliment I can give is not to say how much your programs have taught me (a ton), but how much Marketplace has motivated me to go out and teach myself.” – Michael in Arlington, VABEFORE YOU GO
