For the ridiculously wealthy, it’s all about making the Forbes Rich List, but now the Chinese paper ‘China Social Sciences Press’ has compiled a new way to measure affluence with the ‘Soul-Rich List.’

The paper’s Soul-Rich List highlights those Chinese individuals who are rich in the monetary sense as well as in the "spiritual" sense. Included in this list are philanthropists like Chen Guangbiao and film stars like Faye Wong. At the top of the list is Yuan Longping, who has been touted as the "father of hybrid rice."
