Missing: Jack Ma
The founder of Alibaba made the Internet business bigger in China. Jack Ma looked almost bigger than the country and the party. Now a man with an estimated fortune of $ 50 billion has disappeared. Looking for clues.
aWhen a golden elevator opens in a skyscraper on New York’s Fifth Avenue on January 9, 2017, two entrepreneurs step outside for whom it cannot go higher. One is Donald Trump, who became the 45th President of the United States. The other is Jack Ma. “A major figure” “in relations with China”, as the television channel CNBC commented live.
“Jack” will create “one million jobs” in the US, Trump announced in front of the cameras.
