In Justin Yifu Lin’s legendary life, there have been several important turning points, each of which has not only changed the course of his life dramatically, but also enriched his knowledge and broadened his minds and professional horizons. Lin dropped out of university to study at a military college in Taiwan 40 years before. Just as everything in his life seemed to be as perfect as it could be, he took a huge risk swimming across the Taiwan Strait to the mainland. Afterwards he studied at Peking University, the University of Chicago, and Yale University. After coming back to China as an overseas returnee, he spent decades with a swimming athlete’s tenacity working on the Three Rural Issues and promoting the New Countryside Movement in China. In 2008, at the age of 56, Lin became Senior Vice President and Chief Economist of the World Bank and continued to put into practice his dream of “serving the wellbeing of people all over the world”.
