A decade ago, Chris Mayer scoured economic hotspots like China, Brazil, South Africa, Mongolia in person. The book he wrote about his adventures, World Right Side Up, explores the idea of a “New Silk Road” — which came up in our chat with Sean Ring who’s been living and trading in Asia for 12 years. We’re of the impression China will be the investment story of this century, in good and bad ways for Western investors. We traveled to China with Chris on that leg of his boots-on-the-ground look at the global investment landscape. We helped assemble and publish the book, too. So we thought we would catch up with him on the 10th anniversary of the book’s publishing and take a look at what the gent sees now.
