    US is going to be soon no. 2 in many things. It’s a sad day for all Americans. Soon enough it’ll be no. 3 when India rises. With an aging population and all the hard working immigrants driven out of the country you’ll be left with a spiraling economy that you won’t be able to arrest. India and China will be big and lucrative markets so it won’t really affect the global economy.

      China export things, India export people. Over time, China gain infrastructure and attract talent.

      @Alibaba, india is the fastest growing major economy in the world. It has a younger population, even younger than China and it is #6 economy by nominal GDP in the world (and #3 by PPP) It is a huge market for manufacturing and consumption.

      @apple - where is the manufacturing in India. They import almost everything. That needs to change significantly for India to grow.

    High volume of sales on Alibaba means that a lot of suppliers for Amazon have stocked their inventories for Holiday season. It actually means that you can expect a lot of deals on Amazon, and Amazon sales this Holiday season will also be a record.

      It's a truth. I have anecdotes where the sellers on Amazon went on a buying spree on Alibaba. Your dumbness is about calling others dumb without doing deep dive.

    Alibaba will dominate amazon, maybe even acquire it in the future

      No way! US government will probably ban Alibaba for some national security reason, just like Huawei, if it ever gets too big.

      US govt will sell their soul to all the $$ from China. They hold 2 trillion in fed bonds. Got us by Ze proverbial balls

    Apparently not. So it's not an apple-to-apple comparison since Amazon was down half of the time on Prime Day.

    So lol Alibaba is a wholesale and distribution website while amazon is retail. Alibaba should have higher revenue while Amazon has higher margins.

      No, AliExpress is their side business. They make far more money in online retail business in China than shipping stuff to US distributer I think since China has far bigger population than the US.

      Are you dumb? Or have you just never visited alibaba.com lol. Aliexpress is a retail site lol alibaba.com is a site that links Chinese manufacters with American distributors as well as other countries and facilitates the transaction. Aliexpress was created to compete with other Chinese retail sites like dhgate. That is Alibabas core business. Yes they do other things around infrastructure and stuff but that's not their core business yet.

      No it's not. Connecting overseas buyers/sellers together is a small part of the business.

    And people here think Amazon is too big and should be broken up. Do the Chinese think Alibaba is too big?

      It's easy to say but impossible to be done. It's as hard as having a third party candidate to win general election in the US.

    Alibaba is for a specific type of business person. Amazon is for everyone whether you BUY or SELL. I don’t go to Alibaba for sponges
