I saw Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba, a Chinese entrepreneur, replying to an interviewer on its IPO, and I wondered how quickly and definitely the world map is changing: China and India are growing fast, whereas Japan and the EU are declining.
Japan's GDP is now one third as much as
that of China in terms of US dollar. Moreover, Thompson Reuters predicts
some Chinese will win the Nobel Prizes.
I do not worry about that,
rather, I hope that the world will less depend on the US politics and
culture and that it will be full of variety, though there would not be a
legend Jack Ma but for the US market.
