An analysis of John McDuling‘s article in The Australian Financial Review “Locals fight back against Uber in ridesharing battle”
1 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY – Maria mainly responsible & others will support
Since its inception seven years ago, Uber Technologies has raised $16 billion in cash and debt. With a valuation of $69 billion, (Newcomer 2016) it is a global company competing in 230 cities in 45 countries (Condo 2014).
Uber is competing with other ridesharing and taxi hailing apps such as Lyft, DiDi Chuxing, Grab and BlaBlaCar as well as with the taxi industry as point-to-point transport.
Uber can be thought of as a marketplace unto itself in the analysis of demand and supply and elasticity.
