The article presents the impression of the editor session of the Forbes Global CEO Conference in Singapore in September 2006. Here was the region's richest resident, Li Ka-shing, tying the milestones of his 78 years to a crowning wish. Li this summer signaled that a third of his $19 billion fortune would go to philanthropy, and he urged the 400-plus delegates to transcend Asian custom that "wealth and means pass through lineage as an imperative duty"--in other words, inheritance.
