On Jack Ma

Great read from the AFR on Jack Ma (paywall).

Two quotes stood out for me:

“Spending money is more difficult than making money for me today,” says Ma, the richest man in a country with more than 300 billionaires. “I did not expect I would be that wealthy and now I’m that wealthy, I have convinced myself that wealth is not mine.”

“I understand that Jack Ma and Jack Me, they are different. Jack Ma has become the model image for a lot of people. But I’m not that guy,” he says. “I don’t want to take all the credit for Alibaba. It’s not me. When people in the media say ‘Jack Ma is so great, he launched this thing’, I say ‘I saw it on the news, too’. It is the team that is making it great,”
