RE: Uber and Lyft Shrug
Uber has become absolutely essential overseas. I totally disagree it's a zero investment type business. They go to extraordinary lengths to be able to operate in corrupt 2nd world countries where bureacracy blocks every single little thing which originates from foreign business enterprise and taxis are literally run by mafia organizations. They throw a lot of money around to make that happen.

Without Uber you'd be dealing with shitty taxi scams and even potential robbery 24-7 in places like Manila.

Try taking a normal taxi regularly in Vietnam sometime without knowing the language. You will get ripped off a lot.

The fact that Uber can negotiate their way into developing world markets and operate just fine but can't even find a reasonable middle ground to operate in a city like Austin just proves what a shit show U.S. leftist bureaucracy has become.
