Document China: The New Red Billionaires (Chine : les nouveaux milliardaires rouges) Laure de Charette et Marion Zipfel On the tarmac of Sanya airport, in the tropical island of Hainan in Southern China William Shi, unkempt hair, denim shorts and white shirt, has come to buy a new jet for his father. While the young heir rushes into a car with tinted windows, a small group boarded a forty million dollar private jet for a very private business lunch.Welcome to the world of China’s super rich. “To Get rich is glorious”! Deng Xiaoping’s famous slogan started China on the way to capitalism thirty years ago freeing up entrepreneurial forces of an entire generation. From the “cosmetics queen” Yue-Sai Kan, to the drinks tycoon Zong Qinghou or the young internet mogul Robin Li, Marion Zipfel and Laure de Charette have met these billionaires that have built fortunes in less than a generation. Their fascinating characters and stories give a glimpse of the economic transformation of China. Impatient, workaholics, devoured by ambition and very well connected, they embody the “capitalism with Chinese characteristics”. However, these success stories, sometimes built on corruption, create a deep sense of injustice in a country that is getting more and more unequal. How Communist China has become one of the largest factories to billionaires? Who are these new emperors of business alike and how do they live? How do they spend their billions of yuan? Laure de Charette, 29, is a French journalist living in Singapore since 2010. She works as the correspondent of “The New Economist”, a French leading business review. She has written several books, such as the successful Gotha City - Investigation inside the secret and powerful French aristocracy. She worked during 5 years for the political section at “20 Minutes”, a French daily newspaper, in Paris.  Marion Zipfel, 33, is a French journalist. She lived in Beijing and Hong-Kong for five years. Back in Paris in 2005, she worked 4 years for a weekly radio program about China, “Chine Hebdo” on the authoritative business radio BFM.
