Let’s Ban Uber and Live in the Trees

Recently, the news that the General Advocate has advised the Court of Justice of the EU to recognize Uber as a standard taxi service appeared online. First, we should probably admit that the attorney was doing his job conscientiously. He examined the defined characteristics of Uber and applied them to the individual boxes of regulations and legislation. What came out of it was de facto the ban of operations of Uber’s business model. If Uber had fulfilled all the requirements which the authorities wanted to impose on it, Uber would no longer be Uber, but a standard taxi service accessed through an app.

In recent months the media have begun to discuss the cashless economy, which does not use physical cash but only credit cards or other forms of electronic payment (e.g. PayPal).
