Trump meets with Alibaba’s Ma and promises 1M new jobs…

President-elect Donald Trump has had a successful meeting with Alibaba’s Jack Ma on Monday. The new president and the entrepreneur discussed creating 1M new American jobs in the next five years. Some analysts have called the assertion rather exaggerated but the company’s goal is not to directly employee a million of new employees but to rather create new market opportunities and collaborators who will in turn employee a new work force. Alibaba will essentially create new U.S. jobs by enabling over a million of American small businesses and farmers to sell American goods to China and Asian consumers using the Alibaba platform.
