He meets millionaires who have to be careful not to flaunt their wealth and also spends a couple of days with a group of migrant workers who sacrifice so much to try and realise the "Chinese Dream" – a belief that working hard now will lead to a better life in the future. Although Reggie isn’t entirely convinced the workers in China will ever see the benefits of their labours.
