Jack Ma has a warning for those who see globalization as a problem: When trade stops, wars can follow.
"We should keep on going along the path of globalization," Ma said Friday in Hangzhou, China. "Globalization is good… when trade stops, war comes."
The executive chairman of Alibaba (BABA, Tech30) said he hopes the anti-globalization fervor that currently grips much of the world will ease after U.S. elections in November. China, in particular, has been a target of heated rhetoric.
"Every time there's an election, people start to criticize China. They criticize this, they criticize that," Ma told CNN's Andrew Stevens. "[But] how can you stop global trade? How can you build a wall to stop the trade?"
