Alibaba founder Jack Ma has a brutal theory of how America went wrong over the past 30 years
"American international companies made millions and millions of dollars from globalisation,"
"The other countries steal jobs from you guys — that is your strategy. You did not distribute the money in the proper way."
Elsewhere during his talk, Ma said his favourite film was "Forrest Gump" because he saw something of Alibaba in Gump's shrimp boat. Ma quoted Gump as saying "Nobody makes money catching whales — people make money catching shrimps."
"That's how we make money" at Alibaba, he said.
