Jack Ma, founder and executive chairman of Alibaba Group, said Tuesday that the Internet and its various platforms will usher in a wave of global conflict. It will not, however, pit countries against each other, but instead will see the likes of China and the U.S. teaming up to defeat societal ills.
“The third world war is going to happen, and this war is not between nations,” Ma said during a speech hosted by the Economic Club of New York.
“In this war we work together against the disease, the poverty, the climate change—and I believe this is our future.”
“It’s not about the money, it’s about the dreams,” he said of the Internet’s future.
In fact, Ma said Tuesday that in “another life” he would have chosen to keep his company private, as his life has become “much worse” since that record-breaking offering.

Alibaba’s Jack Ma says he will step down as chairman in September next year https://t.co/v3dXu35k0J (http://twitter.com/TIME/status/1039110007579664385?s=17)
Ma said he will be succeeded by CEO Daniel Zhang, an 11-year veteran of the company. Ma handed over the CEO post to Zhang in 2013 as part of what he said was a long-planned succession process.
Ma, a former English teacher, founded Alibaba in 1999 in an apartment in the eastern city of Hangzhou to connect Chinese exporters with foreign retailers.
Ma said he wants to “return to education” but gave no details of his plans.
