Jack Ma, the 56-year old former English teacher who founded the $500-billion powerhouse e-commerce conglomerate Alibaba, the Amazon of Asia, has not been seen in public for two months after criticizing central bankers. Ma spoke at a conference in Shanghai in October about how backward the country’s state-owned banks and regulators were, saying they had a “pawnshop mentality.” This was days before Ma’s financial tech firm ANT Group was readying what would have been the world’s biggest IPO. Ma disappeared, the IPO was cancelled by Chinese president Xi Jinping, and China has launched an antitrust probe into Ma’s company. The Chinese government is reportedly considering nationalizing the company. Alibaba is the world’s largest online commerce company that includes shopping, banking, technology and cloud computing. Ma isn’t an executive or board member at either Alibaba or ANT but he’s the largest Alibaba shareholder with shares worth at least $25-billion. -GEG

January 14, 2021 Matt Aitchison 4

Matt Aitchison says a new law in California, SB 1079, will result in the State entering the real-estate-foreclosed home business, which essentially removes competition from investors, and could ultimately socialize real estate as a whole.

VERY VERY VERY SOON THE USSA WILL BE EXACTLY THE SAME.
