You don't (briefly) become a richest man in the world, squandered 99% of your wealth and then became super rich (again) just by luck... I'll be lucky to get 5% p.a. return on my stock portfolio on a regular basis..

He's grappling in the dark. But it's better than not trying anything.
ViVo_ KOTH (2 months ago)
Lol he started with nothing and was at one point the richest man on the planet. Yet, idiots are still trying to prove he is only "lucky".
Ao Chen (6 days ago)
He finished highschool in three weeks, that's no "luck".

lol we think of Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates etc. but they started with a lot. Masayoshi started with nothing, and like you said at one point was the richest man in the world.

Altair That’s really unfortunate. I do not understand the racism between these two countries. I’m Korean, and I’ve always had the utmost respect and appreciation for the culture. I’m a huge fan of Japanese lit - favorite author being Osamu Dazai. And in fact, I recently had the most incredible privilege of visiting Japan, and I loved every minute. The people there were incredible. Hard to imagine that there are those who harbor negativity.

ULTRA KWON because he is ethnically Korean and some Japanese hate Koreans

Do you mind elaborating? I've never heard of him until this video, which makes him out to look pretty great.

anybody who didnt' see a bubble coming in early 1999 is an idiot, just like anybody who says Bitcoin is not a scam, is an imbecile. Masa was lucky, not smart, gambles with other people's money.
Immanuel Herman (4 months ago)
Bitcoin is not a scam. It's (arguably) over-hyped and overheated, but its technical and fundamentals are solid. I won't recommend anyone to invest in it though, it was not designed as instrument for investment.

In India he made investments in Flipkart (similar to Amazon)(sold to Walmart)(3 times return on investment), he made investments in Paytm (e wallet company)(according to me will lose the race to WhatsApp payment in future or an e wallet called tez (Google co.), And oyo room (cheap hotels)(the founder is even back by Peter Theil...(I don't have opinion abt it because if u wanna book hotel u got lots of options to choose from so I am skeptical abt it)

This dude bought Sprint, ran it into the ground, achieved 1/10th of the success of John Legere over at T-Mobile and now is bailing out his failures and selling to Tmo. If he is a 'great businessman' we certainly havent seen it here in America.

If you use uber in the USA, if you own a smartphone, laptop or Ipad, the chip inside is produced by ARM, if you shop on amazon, most items are ordered from suppliers on Alibaba and Alixpress and then branded for the American market..In America today, if you want to efficiently coordinate teamwork on projects to move quickly, you use the app Slack..So Uber, ARM, Alibaba (which is also the tech company with the biggest Tech IPO EVER in the US) and last we have Slack. Americans are using his products, most are simply unaware.

Actually, he's ancestors were Han Chinese, then they moved to Korea, after that, he's grandfather moved to Japan. He was bullied in school because of his identity, so his father, who got rich by making sake, sent him to U.S. when he was 16. He went back to Japan in 80s and became a real Japanese by law.

does his investment in Ping'An and Ali ring a bell? There is almost certainly this middle man who representing Chinese high class's interests *allowed* Son to invest in those two companies
