We believe customer number one, employee number two, shareholder number three... Because you've take care of the customer, take care of the employees, shareholder will be taken care of.

Comment

Quote from 60 Minutes interview (USA TV show), October 2014 of Jack Ma (founder of Alibaba). Context:

Jack Ma: If you want to invest in us, we believe customer number one, employee number two, shareholder number three. If they don't want to buy that, that's fine. If they regret, they can sell us.

Lara Logan: In the U.S., the shareholder is usually first.

Jack Ma: Yeah. And I think they were wrong. The shareholder, good. I respect them. But they're the third. Because you've take care of the customer, take care of the employees, shareholder will be taken care of.
