Anyone who can build a thriving multi-national business deserves respect. While the concept of Alibaba might be difficult for some people to comprehend, you have to show due course to anyone who can build a business out of nothing. Jack Ma has done so, and he has earned a larger amount respect than he is being shown to date.
Now that he has a thriving business, Jack Ma does deserve our respect. He has proven himself a competent leader time and time again. If he were not worth our respect, Alibaba would not be succeeding nearly as well as it is. It is thriving, and it is time that we acknowledge his success.
When he first started out, he was poor and China didn't even know what the Internet was. Now his company serves millions of people, across many countries where it was slow to get Internet into. Now that he has a thriving business, he has proven that he is a strong business man and deserves respect.
I do not admire or respect Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba. Alibaba source wholesale goods from countries that do not always practice fair labor standards. Alibaba encourages Americans to support enemy nations like China in order to make money, which is never a good idea. Our nation is in too much debt to other nations already.
