Ubernomics and where pie charts fail
Anyways... lest you think the whole Uber/taxi debate is a Pittsburgh thing, or even if what is happening here is even a footnote elsewhere.... see the headlines today in the UK. BBC: London braced for anti-Uber protests. Also, Bloomberg: Uber Protests Poised to Block Roads From London to Madrid. Or if you prefer on this side of the pond. LaTimes: L.A. taxi drivers to protest Uber, other ride-share apps at City Hall or it you want a little closer to home. BostonGlobe: Boston Taxi Drivers Hold Rally to Shut Down Uber
So you might think otherwise if reading local coverage of all this, but Pittsburgh may be one of the least contentious cities where Uber is trying to operate. Ponder that.
