    Great interview and insights from two inspiring leaders.

    Business success = respect and caring for the customer + passion for customer service + long term commitment + humility

    That's just the beginning. 🙂

    Easy: Aliaba has indoctrinated the country and you pretty much have no choice but to use it. So Jack brought his buddy on board and used that power to make it happen.
    Ever notice that comments are disabled on all Aliaba YouTube videos?

    If Starbucks cares so much abut its customers, then why does it sell overpriced coffee? 😀

    Both of them are brainy and humble ….. Howard Schultz is humble guy and a man of integrity but is not enough to become a President of USA because Americans love foul mouth and arrogant candidates and 'brain power' ? is not a necessity.

    Both are a great combo, you can see the tremendous amount of respect Jack ma has for Schultz and Schultz for Jack Ma.


  17. Haitham Mogherbi

    with all due respect, Jack Ma, when he says that traditional brick and mortar retail and online retail should work together is becoming a mouth piece for social stability in certain regions. No, the market must be allowed to self correct, without interference and we can't immaturely decide if brick and mortar should work with online; regardless of how nice a sound clip this may be for the local consumptive market.


  18. Haitham Mogherbi

    April 26, 2018 at 9:45 pm

    Jack Ma isn't even being shy in regards to being a communist mouth piece is he? I was appalled by his robo worship of the Communist Party Leader without even flinching a chinese lash


  19. Haitham Mogherbi

    April 26, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    This easily exemplifies how business operates: a communist dictatorship regime instilling fear and worship in its servants (ahem Jack Ma) versus a free market businessman such as Mr Schultz


  20. Haitham Mogherbi

    April 26, 2018 at 9:52 pm

    I appreciate Mr Schultz for his comment: "I will not criticize the president of the unites states on foreign soil". Well put sir

    I have finished watching this video completely.

    I am a Taiwanese who cares about the global affairs.

    And, sadly, most of my fellow Taiwanese don't really care about the world.

    Hopefully Taiwan can become increasingly globally-aware and globally-competitive.

    God bless Taiwan.

    Jack Ma is not a genius, nor a crook, but a genius crook. First, everyone must understand that in China there is no real private enterprise which can reach Fortune 500 without Chinese Communist Government (CCG)’s control behind it. What worse is that the control is often not exercised by government but by top level corrupted government officials and their family members. There is no secret that several most powerful CCG officials and their family members are the top shadow shareholders of Alibaba. Second, those top level government officials have used Alibaba to laundry hundreds of billions embezzled monies out of China, mostly through now CCG controlled Hong Kong and into Western countries, particularly the U.S. Third, Alibaba has no new technology nor innovation but just a cheap copy of Ebay and Amazon. CCG has not only used Alibaba to stop foreign businesses such as Ebay and Amazon entering into Chinese market, but also given Alibaba monopoly in Chinese market, upon which Ma/Alibaba’s successful myth is really about. For example, receiving deposits and paying interest are the financial and banking industries monopolied by the government, and many individuals and entrepreneurs have been imprisoned or even punished with death penalty because of raising capitals among friends and local people. Ma/Alibaba is the only non-state-run and non-banking business capable of receiving deposits and paying interest in China. Ma gave numerous speeches all over the world about how he became one of the richest persons in the world and how to become successful and so on, but none of what he said was true. Ma simply is the smiling face of the most evil dictatorship regime in human history, the CCG, which imprisoned Liu Xiaobo, the Chinese Nobel Peace Prize laureate till his death on July 13, 2017 – something that even Adolf Hitler was not dare to do. Mostly importantly, in return for CCG’s favor, Ma has shamelessly promoted for CCG the dictatorship ideology and publicly supported CCG’s Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989 using tanks and machine guns against its own peaceful people! Ma is a new phenomena challenging the conscience of every one of us in this fast-changing world – do we still respect universal human values as our first priority, or money is everything and we should do whatsoever we can to get money, power, and fame, like Jack Ma?

    Jack Ma is the typical Chinese, very pragmatic, not political! I think through his HQ in Switzerland, opportunities have been lost for now!

    The journalist wanted to drag Jack Ma into Politics by being divisive between China and America and Jack Ma didn't want any piece of it.

    Well done, but the journalist was pushing too much his political agenda and bias, other than that a beautiful Starbucks in Shanghai, much better than the boring ones we have in US.

    Case number 1001000009220226 – story how Aliexpress is stilling money from the customers. Don’t be another victim of alibaba greed and double face of Jack Ma. Don’t become another unpaid case “winner” boycott all Jack Ma enterprises until he will pay back all fraudulent transactions.

    What is called corruption in china is called lobbying in the u s.

    But the u s is a multi-party government, representing all kinds of ideologies – well, conservative versus liberal, the status quo versus progress, change, to name two. Does lobbying work? Sure, but then how are social interests protected when private interests can buy votes, political representation? In china, politicians are not to interfere with private interests, but represent social interest only – so it becomes imperative that no corruption – no covetousness, "undue" personal enrichment at the expense of society (should all politicians receive the same salary?), acceptance of bribes, be found amongst them. For envious politicians can quickly derail the growth of businesses, privatisation in china, as entrepreneurs accumulate wealth and status, after taxes.

    Apple, Microsoft, GE ,GM,Starbucks, IBM, quacomm , KFC, McDonald's, Wal-Mart, Otis, sooo many American companies are super successful in China, even China is the biggest market for them, but you didn't hear any single Chinese companies are so successful in America, why DJI , Lenovo, HUAWEI, ZTE, Sinopec, Alibaba, can't succeed in America, because those Chinese companies are threats to American national security, what, hold on second, how , well, American government said that, nobody knows how.

    Great video only because of the 2 business leaders. The journalist however seems to focus more on political agenda and bias. What does this video has to do with North Korea? Stupid topic and journalist for 2 great men.

    4th version of Jack Ma, he's the man of humanity. They two have a lot in common in terms of vision, mission and value. I think Alibaba's business model align better with our future, just hoping their culture will never change.
