Alibaba Pledges $15.5 Billion for Beijing’s ‘Common Prosperity’ Push

Businesses and individual entrepreneurs are in some cases pledging billions of dollars to good causes, and companies have quickly adopted the newly popular slogan, as they seek to stay on the right side of President Xi Jinping’s government amid a series of corporate crackdowns.
