Ridesharing Paritario, non Parassitismo Aziendale!
Di Logan Marie Glitterbomb. Originale pubblicato il 5 giugno 2019 con il titolo Peer-to-Peer Ridesharing, Not Corporate Profiteering! Traduzione di Enrico Sanna. Capita che degli anarco-capitalisti distratti portino Uber e Lyft ad esempio di impresa agorista. Saranno anche leggermente più agoristi del tradizionale servizio di piazza, ma sono tutt’altro che ideali. Più che di agorismo,…
Peer-to-Peer Ridesharing, Not Corporate Profiteering!
Uber and Lyft sometimes get cited as agorist ventures by misguided anarcho-capitalists. While it could be claimed that these models are slightly more agorist in nature than the traditional taxi industry, it is far from the model we should be striving for. Instead of being an agorist model for transportation services, it is merely traditional…

Time to Use Uber’s Weapons — Against Uber
Uber, the controversial corporate employer masquerading as a “ride-sharing” service, has recently stirred up more controversy with new revelations about its Greyball program for circumventing enforcement of local taxicab monopolies.

Capitalism Smothers the Sharing Economy on Feed 44
C4SS Feed 44 presents Chad Nelson‘s “Capitalism Smothers the Sharing Economy” read by Mike Gogulski and edited by Nick Ford. FAR’s efforts, like those being carried out by taxicab oligopolies in Germany, Australia, France, the US and elsewhere, show us how quickly so-called private enterprise jumps on any deviation from the current capitalist structure. That’s…
Horizontal Self-Governance — The Only “Regulation” We Need
A common liberal or “progressive” criticism of so-called “sharing economy” entities like Uber, Lyft and Airbnb (usually appearing in venues like Salon or Alternet) is that they’re “unregulated.”   This implicitly assumes, of course, that regulations like the taxi medallion system exist for some idealistic purpose of serving the “public welfare” and not simply guaranteeing…
Uber: NOT the Networked Successor Economy You’re Looking For
An article at Medium (Tim O’Reilly, “Networks and the Nature of the Firm — What’s the Future of Work?” August 14) describes Uber and Airbnb as “textbook examples” of “the way that networks trump traditional forms of corporate organization, and how they are changing traditional ways of managing that organization.” Um, no. What Uber and…
Capitalism Smothers the Sharing Economy
Russia may have finally caught up with the rest of the world’s governments in cracking down on ridesharing services like Uber. Russia’s Federation of Car Owners (FAR), like any good oligarchy, has complained to Russian state authorities that “rogue” elements such as Uber, Gett, and Yandex represent a “threat to society.” Exactly what kind of…
