Policy Brief 2014/3: “Uber, concurrent déloyal ou champion de l’économie de partage ?”

According to her, this decision has no other effect than protecting the « taxis cartel ».

In this new Policy Brief, Nicolas Petit discusses whether Uber is an unfair competitor or a champion of the sharing economy.
