Paul kedrosky, should we be concerned?

I find the lack of concern from regulators stunning on this one.

This is a company whose corporate structure -- it would put iranian structures to shame.

This is the byzantine nature of the legal structure that allows them to do what they do.

They want to avoid some of the restrictions that would prevent them from listing in age up -- in asia.

It may come back to bite people.

Do you agree?

, i do agree.

I don't think there has been a lot of interest in what alibaba has been doing.

Other people in the tech committee haven't heard of them.

They're trying to get it through in washington.

They are playing that game very well.

Hopefully this will be one of the largest ipos in the sector.

We make it a little more scrutiny on this and these byzantine management structures will be exposed to some extent.

I think hong kong regulators have not endorsed a listing.

That tells you something.

It tells you a lot.

It is quite stunning this is the point we have reached with this listing.

We are probably four to six weeks away from my listing.

It seems unlikely this particular train is going to get stopped.

We will have to wait and see how this plays out.

Our thanks to both of you.

Coming up next, it is the penny
