Alibaba's Chairman, Jack Ma, announced last week that he was stepping down as head of Chinese e-commerce giant. His successor will be Daniel Zhang, who is credited with the development of “Singles Day”, the largest 1-day retail shopping event in the world. Host Dan Loney talks with David Hsu, Professor of Management at the Wharton School, and Orville Schell, Director of the Asia Society’s Center on US-China Relations, to discuss the implications of this changing of the guard on Knowledge@Wharton.
