SHANGHAI — The battle of Alibaba versus Amazon is about to get a lot more interesting.
Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.’s announcement that it would launch a new e-commerce site in the U.S. via two of its subsidiaries is likely motivated by the Chinese e-commerce giant’s plan to launch an initial public offering sometime this year, analysts said. It is expected Alibaba will list in the U.S., in an offering that could value the company at up to $190 billion.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
