    013: Uber is illegal, so let's shut it down!

    13/07/2017 Duração: 01h20min

    According to a Harvard professor, Uber can't be fixed, and it's time to shut it down. But why? Uber proved a lot of the government regulations on taxi services are expensive and unnecessary. Because they bypassed them, they were able to provide cheaper transportation for millions of Americans. For this, the professor argues, they should be shut down. This episode is dedicated to the millions of people who have died while riding in an Uber. If only Uber had the proper commercial licensing, so many lives could have been saved...
