The Morality of Surge Pricing

They could try asking. If there is an emergency, display a notice in the app that says ‘there is an emergency, only necessary traffic please’. That would control traffic, tells drivers they are needed, and do it without pricing the poor out.

Obviously, Uber won’t do it, because that wouldn’t make as much money.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
