100 greatest friends of china and sustainable youth worldwide

W1 English and Chinese – 2 primary passports for productive and joyful worldwide youth?

1976: aged 11 Jack Ma asks himself : what might happen IF in addition to  Chinese I (and my friends and peers) could speak the other worldwide networking language: English? Over the next 20 years, Jack learnt English by guiding tourists, and became his city Hangzhou’s most energetic English teacher, as well as potentially its global youth ambassador.


Help us add to our guided tour of 7 social-economic wonders of Jack Ma as a world record job creator. Search out rising exponential consequences of alumni of Jack Ma’s dedication to multiplying human goodwill, Today, in his early 50s, Jack Ma is busy celebrating his home town’s rebirth as the 21st century’s happiest epicenter of sustainable world trade -   a role Marco Polo had previously congratulated Hangzhou citizens for staging in the 13th Century as the interconnected Capital of The Silk Road - the network of trade routes linking in the ancient world’s commerce. 

W2  MarketsFreedom – how to map WWW  worldwide web, and win-win-win?

1994:   thanks to his translation skills, Jack is sent to California to help negotiate a deal or two. There he saw the worldwide web for the first time- and wondered what could the greatest job creating purpose of  WWW. Why not design ecommerce channels so that any hardworking small enterprise –even in the most faraway village – is free to access a global market?  Jack appears to have started envisioning a role for his beloved country that could grow with the empowerment of youth to work for a united nations of sustainability. Note how this wonder matches Adam Smith scholars and the Scottish Diaspora mission to design value exchange systems which develop peoples across generations and cultures.  Adam in  Wealth of Nations, 1776: "To found a great empire for the sole purpose of raising up a people of customers, may at first sight, appear a project fit only for a nation of shopkeepers. It is, however, a project altogether unfit for a nation of shopkeepers, but extremely fit for a nation whose government is influenced by shopkeepers. " 

W3 Is Financial InclusionDemocracy possible with DT (Data Technology)?

Early 2000s: Jack is wondering how to sustain trust-flows through hundreds of millions of online transactions between buyer and seller. He decides Big Data analysis applied to serve small enterprises across ecommerce trading platform is critical and to lead markets designing the most trusted digital financial tools (eg how Alipay from 2004 evolved as online payment platform with no transaction fees ) and  financial services (how Ant Financial is evolving with blockchain coding expertise uniting big data partners in ending poverty). Ali Baba calls this moving beyond IT to DT.  Consciously or subconsciously Jack Ma orbits around Adam Smith’s core value system published in 1748  Moral Sentiments – trust-flow is what to happily and freely integrate markets around from the bottom up : ie from the smallest, poorest community to the greatest human development vision of worldwide trade- ending poverty. Probably, the most urgent race in Ma’s lifetime now revolves round developing digital banking for China as a financial inclusion system. Digital financial record keeping and ultimately cashless banking can be up to 100 times less costly than having to keep a manual record of everything and distributing cash safely to any global village. Which of two opposite sides will systemically win out from such a sudden transformation?  Will it be:  the little sister networks born into places that had inherited the least resources from the industrial age or the big brother networks of currency manipulation and designing systems that are too big to fail/exist?

W4 How to Celebrate Storytelling Purposes of The Greatest Shows on Earth? (breaking -partner spielberg)

Like Keynes, Ma values youth being empowered to locally and globally celebrate arts, environmental spaces and love of every culture. Can such diverse human values be performed with more real community participation than the bowling alone syndrome of the West’s TV age?  While 2008 revealed subprime capitalism as one of the Western man’s most dismal hours, the good news was that China had time to celebrate its 40 year cultural and entrepreneurial  revolution escape from the least enterprising system a billion people had ever been chained to.  The Olympic Games showed a nation of extraordinary cultural and natural beauties –all the world’s youth could enjoy befriending. Fortunately, the bottom up trust financial system of Ali networks -and clouds- were building communities with exactly the opposite dynamics to macroeconomists’ sub-prime assets. Jack Ma could turn on his family DNA of loving to put on a show. From his corporate celebrations filmed as “The Crocodile in the Yangtze” to landing China ’s G20 at Hangzhou 2016 with a show at the West Lake that emulated the opening of China ’s Olympics. And with surprising cool, 2015 saw Ali Baba acquire China’s leading online movie channel Youku Tudou

W5  youthdemocracy : how much LoveQ is needed for every community to web the greatest #learninggeneration?

At his 50th birthday ;party, it is rumored that Jack Ma promised himself a lot more fun, particularly with young people  as he increasingly returns to his role of one of the world’s most inspiring educators not just the most wonderful businessman the internet has seen to date.   Recapping on the story so far – we now know how alumni of Jack Ma are piloting world social trades that end zero-sum boundaries to human potential. From 2015 Ma was appointed as China’s Commissioner to the education movement coordinated around Gordon Brown as UN special envoy on education. 18 September 2016 : Brown gave 30 national leaders 3 minutes to pitch a uniting vision for parents teachers and children worldwide : let’s make 2016-2030 the greatest #LearningGeneration. Ma launched his empathy with this grand challenge with gusto – by 2030 we need to have celebrated how technology can take half of children’s time out of the “classroom” to action learn skills and arts in or with the community.  We global villagers all need to value a lot more Emotional Q and Love Q and stop examining children as if standardised IQ tests can ever be enough to stimulate the imagination world  

W6 G20 Collaboration Planet - can china’s leadership unite worldwide partners in sustainability world trading infrastructure and global youth investment? 1
Between 2000 and 2015, the United Nations spent a lot of energy debating the value of Public Private Partnerships as a way of webbing the world’s economies and societies. It did little to integrate global youth (that is the half of the world’s population under 30] in PPP except at once a year PR shows. Isn’t this a mistake as most of the world’s greatest coders and designers co-create the most while young. Can the purpose of the G20 stage offer worldwide remedies to failing to value youth fully? Leader Xi Jinping authorizes billions of dollars of investment in Hangzhou to host China G20 in August 2016, and brands China ’s entrepreneurial invitations to collaborate around sustainability action networking – The Hangzhou Consensus. Among initiatives showcased , Jack Ma’s Ewtp (Electironic World Trade Platform) appears ready to rock and roll. Why not unite all the world’s small enterprises in an ecommerce platform and let them trade freely? Small enterprises pose no threat to any competitive nation’s economy – in fact they serve to free all of humanity’s races to end poverty and improve the lot. Believers in Adam Smith’s systems discipline have a lot to thank Xi Jinping and Jack Ma for.    What futures a place’s youth enjoy are locked in by what economic rules compound – can 2016 be the first year that the human race turns round to value youth sustainability sans frontieres? 

W7 Futures: QuarterBillionGirls- The Best or Worst of Times To Be Alive?

Jack Ma has shown what impacts can come from one Chinese boy’s wonders. He has also set us wondering what LoveQ is. What could happen if every Chinese girl under 30 was freed by education to either speak the 3 most exciting universal languages – Engliish, Chinese and Coding – or to be socially and economically supported by borderless youth linkedin to these meta-collaboration opportunities. How could open spaces be webbed everywhere so that LoveQ family culture interacts the greatest #LearningGeneration? How do we value the lifetimes spent of today’s net generation so that sustainability goals develop people. Inter-generation community is in the DNA of China. It’s time for Chinese under 30s women and parents to be celebrated as citizens ready to help lead a global village world beyond the borders and constraints that only valuing industrial age consumption locked humanity into. While China’s exponential progress of a financial sort over the last 40 years is globally famous, can its social innovation capabilities be shared with global youth in time for sustainability’s climate to return to planet earth?

7 wonders of tim berners lee

 Tim's peers aged aged under 30 in 1976 were united in the most exciting challenge to have ever occupied we the peoples:   what will be greatest collabortaion projects on earth become over the next 40 years?

Visis any developed nation university or gov lab and find the one experiment going on most inspired by conclusion of 1960s that man collaborating through terminals could connect computing power to racing to the moon

GREATEST COMMUNICATIONS REVOLUTION- In comparision such innovations as printing press (Info sharing) or industrial revolution's steam engine (mobility- exponential growth of transport to commute round cities as workers spaces and distribute things to consume) were minor blips on civilisation's radar. Bluntly if industrial revolution winners games involved zero-sum race to extract from planet earth, how much happier could post-industrial revolution be if growth of people turned out to be not just the only sustainable economic model but one celebrating human co-creatvity without borders

The Economist survey of Entrepreneurial Revolution pointedr out: we we're not just orbiting a moore's law of silicon chips doubling analysis power every 2 yeas but that the revolution in communications and human technology connectivity every 7 years since 1947 had started doubling and redoubling expenditures - eg quality electronics, computers, telecommunications, computer chips, satellites -statistocaly likely to compound every 7 years throughout tim berners lee life; thats over 4000 fold by 2030. With all that reallocation of how peoples were to spend money and time, life critical service better come down in cost as the optimistic reasoning of why all our futures are to be networked around exponentiallly accelerating connections worldwide

death of cost of distance in connecting knowhow would bring greatest changes to human race that 3 generations grandparents (ie parents of tim bl's generation), parents (ie tim bl's gen) and youth (ie the first net gen of the 21t C) would linkin to start of 21st century; this systems revolution was unstoppable- for better or for worse- let's hope that sustainability goals did not just become some political PR game but the reality of what everyone's life and livelihood celebrated

1982 the birth of the personal computer exploded the scenario that the design of the new world would be left to a few nerds- everyone's future livelihoods would be connected worldwide (virtual space) and not just history's real places

1989 tim berners lee birth of the worldwideweb made collaboration networking visible to everyone; the digital revolution that had conneceted big enterprises in 1980s (from paper based telexes to online global analysis) could now linkin every enterprise and every educational infrastructure.

how would this be governed openly was to become TIM BL lifetime gift to the world

1996 applications of the internet were being taken over by ecommerce and mobile access- would this spin positively or negatively. Core Entrepreneurial reality scenario from 1976 had been  : how do we design the smartest media ever to interconnect humanity in opposite ways to which tv media had accidentally spun much of second half of West's 20th centiry into dumbing diwn, addiction, loss of real community life. All because the most popular form of entertainment had become pasively watchng tv screens instead of actively celebraing real spaces that generate thriving community and joy of local artistic cultures2003: The west's english-language race to build the biggest commerce websites to click to was now mature with secondary advertsing webs oddly calling themselves social media racing top web audience rankings. In happy contrast, those speaking the world's other great language chinese were experimenting with job creating web platforms not just consumption-driven societies. Search Hangzhou Consensus reports 2016 on EWTP for latest good news2010 it was now clear that smartphones were to mobile generations what the personal computer had promised to liberate from 1982. Moreover it would be apps on these phones that connected whatever consequences, the borderless human race will orbit towards: to sustainability or worldwide collapse of civilisation and climate2016 TBL "The Web as I envisaged it, we have not seen it yet. The future is still so much bigger tha the past.". To Be or Not to Be ? - help conclude survey over 40 years questioning how will sustainability of humans spiral around technology's interconnectivity revolution? Recommendation #1 :Blockchain offers our human race one last call to design local sustainability of globalisation. This isnt only about empowering the half of the world aged under 30 but concerns parents and elders everywhere whose quality of life depends on what real market opportunities we organise for children everyone to grow up and develop communities around. Today's critical timelines converge on:  will planetary-scaled system designs of man collaborate with nature's bottom up and open rules or conflict with her valuation of evolution of species.  Thus the burning question to mediate socially around the world : can we make 2016 to 2030 the greatest #learinggeneration?. Jim Kim has spent his life seeking to improve the affordability of global health and empower sustainability purposes of young professionals of the 21st Centiry. Knowing of his view of Jack Ma is enlightening:   I kept asking about how he came with these ideas and what his motivation was—I was so impressed – I came back to the world bank and I asked my whole team a very simple question- have we taken into account the ali baba factor in how we think about everything we do because if ali baba is the way to develop the world then we might not be doing the right things at at all

 Jim Kim Celebration of Jack Ma Appointment at UN special adviser on youth entrepreneurship


I kept asking about how he came with these ideas and what his motivation was—I was so impressed – I came back to the world bank and I asked my whole team a very simple question- have we taken into account the ali baba factor in how we think about everything we do because if ali baba is the way to develop the world then we might not be doing the right things at at all


 – I was so impressed because jack had a deep moral vision for what he was doing in his business


Now the way he processes and understand data is better than anyone else


– I asked him what about this company, that company and jack said we eat them for lunch because we process material so much faster than they do – its because we have been working at it for longer and have figured it out


He told me how he took farmers who were losing their livelihoods and helped them form transport companies – he told me how he went to poor communities and gave a young woman a computer – and then as she started showing the villagers on ali baba that they could get a washing machine for a third of price that they paid in the local community but when the truck came out to deliver the washing machine ali baba had also organised that some of the village produce was transported back


.. he created an economy that no mater how poor how distant you were , you had access to the global market – the first thing he told me I will never forget – my dream is that a grandmother wakes up in a kansas orders something from a rural Kenyan craftsperson and gives it to her grandson in england – that’s my dream


You know there is a lot of talk about how the global market capitalism is so unfair and its true that there are so  many unfair things but one of the thongs we know is china lifted 700 million people out of poverty –one of greatest achievements in history it was because of more trade not less trade


There are certain principles we understand that could potentially lift hundreds of millions of people out of poverty – I believe that jack ma’s understanding that what needs to be done to help small and medium enterprises to encourage entrepreneurship even in the poorest communities is potentially the one way that we can get to a world free of extreme poverty, in which we grow the economy in a way that is inclusive


Jack has it in his dna , ali baba has it in his dna, he understand a profound truth that  I think will contribute tremendous amount to the united nations – now the only thing is we have to listen to him


and we have to push him too, ;push him to challenge us to think differently about how we are going to create this world where everyone can participate, everyone has access to the market, everyone has access to capital – you can go online and jack can tell you in 30 seconds whether you can get a loan from me or not – these are the kinds of innovations that give us great hope and without them I despair on our chances of ending poverty


Jack congratulations-  all of us in multilateral system are so much better off now that you are one of us and I help you will help us shape the future




breaking #learninggeneration news last week october 2016: if you are not at a usa or china rehearsal of rachel  plus in the next fortnight - recommend you do a flash search of what this intel inspired school in a computer looks like- of course one can start to add on missing curricula alongside those rachel is already channeling- queries


7 wonders of harrison owen - rough dates included eg in wonder #1 date  1983



#1 83 what do (teachers of) 5th graders (and all who grow up civil society) need to know about system transformation and action networking


in 1983 harrison owen was convening the worldwide conference for experts in system transformation- like conventional conference producers he assumed his delegates wanted famous podium speakers- feedback from the conference required harrison to radically change his mindset as facilitator of what this profession wanted- they preferred the coffee breaks to the speakers sessions- why?

  • It was their once a year opportunity to connect from around the world: to find out who linkedin with who in mutually most creative ways, as well as to interpersonally explore cultures etc
  • Contexts of  specialism in system transformations varied; in 1983 a leading segmentation involved those who saw community building as only about conscious aspects of how humans related to each other, and those who saw computing technology as about to scale virtual communities as a defining livelihood change of the next generation of human being


#2 84 which stories do alumni of harrison owen value most in hubbing how the world of communities understands open space technology as a breakthrough in mediating future and history by empowering positive emotional intelligence


in practical terms open space technology involves “how to” maximize actionable consequences of up to 5000 people meeting live over a 3 day period- Harrison literally hosted the first open space by surprising the global 1984 delegates of system transformation that all of the conference would be in coffee-break networking form; note how the stories that emerged from these 3 days were to transform the actual profession of system transformation; essential stories of alumni of OST include


1 there is only one law – the law of 2 feet during the open space (ie if a group are conveneing a session that you dont have positive contribution to- politely leave and join another group)

the second shock is how little learning media give to this- so what did the winner do that other teachers (or schooling systems) can now be emulating - what can be learnt from the the runners up; can we broaden the prize - either more philantropists and so more prizes; or other prizes more targeted at teacher collaborations- why arent their reality tv apprentice shows led by worlds greatest teachers instead of over-trumpers - what happens to a nation who idolises the wrong sort of wizard apprentice (search right kinds eg MIT sorcerers apprentice  fir menu of my favorite square mile (kendall station boston) walking tour -where yours?

 whose futures is jinping connecting next

Oct 2016 : China’s President Xi Jinping landed in Dhaka on Friday marking the first visit by a Chinese head of state to Bangladesh in 30 years.

Chinese state-media heralded the visit as a diplomatic “milestone” of “historic significance,” as the two countries will sign at least 21 agreements amounting to nearly $40 billion investment in Bangladesh.

The deal comes after of a series of investments made by Chinese companies in Bangladesh in the past several months — including a $1.1 billion deal signed this week by Chinese cable manufacturer Jiangsu Etern Co. to strengthen the South Asian country’s power grid, and a $3.1 billion deal by China Railway Group to build nearly 170 km of railroads connecting the capital Dhaka to southwestern cities.

Xi is on a diplomatic tour that began in Cambodia and will culminate in a visit to India, during which he will attend the BRICS Summit in Goa.

1 which americans agree that china's new silk road is worth under 30's friending


A month ago China unveiled an action plan for China’s controversial One Belt, One Road initiative. The action plan introduces a series infrastructure development projects and trade related agreements along three Silk Roads emanating from China and reaching as far as Europe, Africa, and South America. It undoubtedly will be the subject of scrutiny as analysts and pundits on both sides of the Pacific chime in to make hasty comparisons to China’s 14th century maritime expansion and the more recent U.S. ledMarshall Plan.  Some may even go as far to equate the One Belt, One Road to Japan’s pernicious WWII era East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere – this analogy, to the Chinese, is ultimately insulting.

Scrutiny and false comparisons aside, China and the world will be made economically better off by a successful implementation of the One Road, One Belt initiative.  China estimates the total benefit stream for investors and firms that participate in the initiative to reach an astronomical USD 21 trillion. Moreover, the prospects of such benefits are particularly timely at a time when global aggregate demand is on a downslide.   During a series of fall 2013 visits to Asian neighbors, China’s president Xi Jinping first announced the One Road, One Belt proposal as an umbrella concept describing three economic belts extending westward from China toward Europe and Africa.  The three economic belts roughly follow historical trade routes linking China with the West and are known as the New Silk Road, South Silk Road, and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road (See map).

tracking countries whose government support sdistributed ledger technololgy - eg UK

The progress of mankind is marked by the rise of new technologies and the

human ingenuity they unlock.

In distributed ledger technology, we may be witnessing one of those potential

explosions of creative potential that catalyse exceptional levels of innovation.

The technology could prove to have the capacity to deliver a new kind of trust to

a wide range of services. As we have seen open data revolutionise the citizen’s

relationship with the state, so may the visibility in these technologies reform our

financial markets, supply chains, consumer and business-to-business services,

and publicly-held registers.

We know there will be challenges as Distributed Ledgers mature and disrupt

how we think about and store data. The UK is in a unique position to explore

those challenges and help maximise the benefits to our public services and our

economy. We already have world-class digital capability, innovative financial

services, a strong research community and growing private sector expertise.

Alibaba founder Jack Ma unveils ambitious plan

Mission: 100 million new jobs

By Dana McCauley

He already runs the world's biggest online shopping company, but Alibaba founder Jack Ma is not satisfied.

The Chinese billionaire has unveiled an even more ambitious plan to expand the company's reach across the globe, creating 100 million new jobs and transforming the global economy to create a more equitable world.

It may sound pie-in-the-sky, but the goal forms part of mission statement of the US$261 billion company's visionary executive chairman.

In a letter to shareholders, Ma outlined Alibaba's achievements of the past financial year - including a gross merchandise turnover of more than $195 billion (1 trillion RMB), an "unprecedented" figure - before looking to the future.

"We have more than 430 million annual active buyers, which means one out of every three individuals in China has made a purchase on our retail marketplaces," Ma wrote.

But, he said, while proud of Alibaba's online shopping achievements, "we want to do far more", saying that the benefits of globalisation had not been spread evenly, but that "digital disruption will bring us closer to a level playing field for young people and small businesses".

"We are not merely trying to shift buy/sell transactions from offline to online, nor are we changing conventional digital marketing models to squeeze out a little additional profit," he wrote.

"We are working to create the fundamental digital and physical infrastructure for the future of commerce, which includes marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing, big data and a host of other fields."

The Alibaba group of companies, founded in 1999, accounts for 60 per cent of all Chinese online sales, and this year overtook Walmart as the world's largest retailer.


It has made Ma the second richest man in Asia, with a net worth of US$28.5 billion.


It's through cloud computing that Alibaba aims to expand its reach, and the company has been investing in the technology as part of a strategy that sees shoppers' data as the contemporary equivalent of mineral riches.

"Over the next 30 years, with computing power as the new 'technology breakthrough' and data as the new 'natural resource,' the landscape of retail, financial services, manufacturing and entertainment will be transformed," Ma wrote, forecasting a decades-long period of transformation.

"The internet revolution is a historical inflection point, much like when electricity was introduced, and it may have an even greater impact," he predicted.

Alibaba's mission, he said, was to "empower merchants with the ability to transform and upgrade their businesses for the future" and "help companies all over the world to grow".

"We believe, the commerce infrastructure we have created in China - marketplaces, payments, logistics, cloud computing and big data, all working in concert - can be applied on a global scale to lift up small and medium businesses and ordinary consumers around the world."

Eight years after launching, Alibaba Cloud hosts 35 per cent of Chinese websites, while delivering cloud computing and big data services.


Ma said Alibaba was constantly adapting to the changing e-commerce environment, as staying at the forefront of innovation was key to its continued success.

"In the coming years, we anticipate the birth of a re-imagined retail industry driven by the integration of online, offline, logistics and data across a single value chain," he said.

"With e-commerce itself rapidly becoming a "traditional business," pure e-commerce players will soon face tremendous challenges."

A shift to mobile revenue was one such change, he said, with mobile climbing from a single-digit percentage to three-years of total revenue from Alibaba's Chinese retail marketplaces, in the space of two years.

"This is why we are adapting, and it's why we strive to play a major role in the advancement of this new economic environment," Ma said.

Innovations like Alibaba's Qianniu app, which helps online businesses to improve sales and marketing while enhancing efficiency, were an example of the type of projects the company aimed to focus on.

"In 20 years, we hope to serve two billion consumers around the world, empower 10 million profitable businesses and create 100 million jobs," Ma said, adding: "This will be an even more difficult journey than the one behind us."

LISTEN : Newstalk ZB Political Editor Barry Soper speaks to Andrew Dickens on KPMG Early Edition

Mr Ma - who's worth around $50 billion - met with John Key in Beijing late yesterday. He made his money through founding the online commerce platform Ali Baba.

Standing alongside the Prime Minister, he heaped praise on the country, which he says is loved by many Chinese.

"At least 20 of my colleagues retired from Ali Baba. They're all very young, in their 40s, they all go to New Zealand."

"I asked what they do apart from the golf and green things and they say it's the people there."

It wasn't all social, with the Chinese billionaire also talking business.

Jack Ma told the entrepreneurs luncheon Kiwi businesspeople find it difficult to access the Chinese market.

Mr Ma said he wants to make that easier with his multi-platform organisation.

"We have Ali Baba University. We would either have courses in New Zealand or invite the entrepreneurs in New Zealand to stay in China for two weeks for training."

"The second is that we're going to open an Ali Baba business embassy next year in New Zealand."

John Key is in China meeting business and political leaders.



Innovation "Made in China" - The Case of Alibaba and the role of Net-based Small Business

Innovation is a key driver for economic development and social progress and small business is one of the best ways for people to express their willingness and capability to innovate.  Pervasive business ownership has, therefore, been the foundation in many societies for the continued improvement of people’s economic wellbeing. In the People’ Republic of China, however, private business ownership was prohibited between 1957 and 1978. Productive innovations were extremely restricted and as a consequence, China’s economy was on the verge of collapse by the end of 1978. The Chinese people had suffered a historic setback.

Alibaba’s growth, driven by unleashing grassroots entrepreneurship, has become an exemplar of China’s innovation in the 21st century.  Started by 18 young people in 1999, Alibaba has grown into a giant global internet platform and has made many invaluable contributions to China’s progress. Highlighting the importance of pervasive small business ownership in unleashing grassroots innovation and improving economic wellbeing, Professor Lowrey will discuss Alibaba’s innovative strategies and explain the economic theory behind its inspiring success.




Dr. Ying Lowrey is Professor of Economics at Tsinghua University and Deputy Director of the Tsinghua Research Center for Chinese Entrepreneurs, and a member of the Academic Committee for Alibaba Group Research Institute. Her teaching and research interests include economics of innovation and entrepreneurship in the internet and platform economy, the modern microfinance market, business demographics, characteristics of business owners, and the role of free enterprise and competition in the macroeconomy. 

She received her economics Ph.D. from Duke University, economics MA from Yale University and mathematics BS from Wuhan University. Before joining Tsinghua University in 2012, she served as senior economist at the Office of Advocacy, U.S. Small Business Administration and has taught economics at George Washington University and San Diego State University.

In 1995 he was sent to the usa on an exchange mission and encountered the worldwideweb - then unknown in China. He determined the www would be the biggest job creating innovation of his (or his generations) life and hopefully of every Chinese entrepreneur he could valuably link into.

Over the next 15 years his wizard coding teams went from something that was little more than an electronic yellow pages for small businesses to conceiving sustainability generation's 2 greatest retailing platforms china or the world may ever have seen..

the taobao platform is the most valuable job creating concept retailers have ever mediated because it reverses the western trend of globalisiation of retailers, bankers and big corporations squeezing out local and small enterprises from having a market; how taobao did that is an extraordinarily detailed story but note how Ma was concerned to ensure even the most cut-off of Chinese villagers could start up on tao bao (rural ecommerce is one of the innovations that Ma has led the www purpose to linkin)

His other mall was pitched at the more usual high cost fashions of big global merchandisers. Because of complex property laws in chinese cities, most expensive retailers are not much of a joy to shop in. So ali baba created a lifestyle -eg celebrate singles day 11/11 shopping virtually rather than the physically exhausting interaction in The West's biggest shopping days of the year)

SO 365/24/7 consumers of ali baba can choose who they value developing most with their purchasing power as well as searching merchandise with global image or local cultural joy

Alibaba has become china's and probably the word's largest retailing channel. It does this with next to no merchandise but brilliant coding so that every store front on its platforms delivers with equal reliability. Hunting out exactly how Ma forms partnerships so that big data analysis benefits the smallest enterprises and most local consumers ought to be a job of whomever is sustainability goals greatest economist.
