hello i'm has i'm sick of this is counting the cost on al-jazeera your weekly look at the world of business and economics this week a red light as legal challenges grow we'll look at whether its business model can survive in its present form also this week oil rebalancing as prices enter a bull market we'll look at the factors at play. plus how your guys' legal marijuana industry is facing a threat no one predicted. a lot of technology has changed how people all over the world hail a taxi just like google it's got its own verb. that means to change the market for a service by introducing a different way of using it you might say air b.n. b. arise the property rental market for example popularity has made it indispensable car rides service in cities all over the world the sixty eight billion dollar company is planning an i.p.o. next year and now the challenge will be to disrupt its own business model to adapt
for survival but in twenty seventeen a series of scandals over its business practices and its treatment of workers has kept it in the headlines for all the wrong reasons and it's being stripped of its license to operate in london now one of the biggest markets for cabs in the world. looks at how that decision is going down. for the last year he's been driving for he works six days a week and says he makes enough money to support his family he enjoys being able to choose when he works he's one of forty thousand duba drivers in the british capital but now the regulators transport for london who run the city's buses and underground trains so they won't extend dupers license beyond the end of the month for many people who've got used to the service it's a shock so you can cross to go from one place to another say quickly so. when we came out as are ok this is obviously not she was going to train but i still
feel like i'm i don't feel like i'm paying ridiculous amounts. to a lack of corporate responsibility in areas such as the reporting of serious criminal offenses it follows allegations that drivers suspected of sexual assaults were allowed to keep driving spent some time going through the regulations that parliament's given them in relation to decide in a private vehicle approaches for some proper. evidence and tearful have concluded today that on a proper vehicle operator the real concerns around safety and security has come out fighting suggesting t.f. else decision is motivated not by safety concerns but by politics and promising to fight the move in the courts by trying to ban in london there caving into the pressure exerted by a small minority that want to restrict consumer choice and competition this decision if it helps true will mean over forty thousand licensed drivers will be out of work traditionally after in london's west end. restaurant people
with a hail a black taxi five years ago arrived and caused a sensation with just a few clicks on your mobile phone you can get to where you're going to at a cheaper price but of course it's caused controversy as well. last year dr james fire or took the firm to court arguing drivers should be treated as employees with rights to the minimum wage and sick pay what to have on the mayor a nuber should do is they should evolve regulations for attorney central twenty first century they should enforce and develop regulations effectively and they should protect worker rights of drivers who can carry on operating in london at least until appeals have been exhausted but this is one more setback for a firm that's been hit by legal challenges and protests around the world and also made life easier for millions of people well joining me now from london is called
benedict frey karl is the co-director of the oxford martin program on technology and employment thanks very much for being with us now we're talking about a huge market in london are we how damaging is this for globally. well london and constitute roughly five percent of you bus driver space and the u.k. is its second largest market in europe so indeed this would be quite a significant blow to uber and while while it has been great for consumers it's often seen as being bad for the lame of market in form of less job security lower pay and all the rest of it but you did a study on the impact of sharing economy platforms like uber on jobs and what were some of the findings well what you're finding is that actually after the introduction of uber employment in texas services expands quiet significantly so overall that you create jobs rather than destroy
a step to expand the labor market for texas services but what happens then obviously as the labor supply expands is that there is more competition and that tends to drive down wages for incumbent drivers which is a side effect of that success if you like but in addition to that there's also evidence to suggest that it would drive a section very happy with their lives stay value the flexibility that the platform office then they're quite content with their financial compensation so on balance i think that most of the evidence actually suggest that you have a driver's fear reasonable well now a lot of people are saying that this could be a game changer for the gig economy that other governments may feel emboldened now to more heavily regulate companies like you think that could happen . well it's possible i mean we will see what kind of a deal that is made if
a deal is made i think this is quite actually a high risk game because the consequences of uber actually being bad would be very bad for london consumers a lot of people have actually structured their lives surrounding the every lability of uber quite of few people actually you can use it to commute to work it might constitute a risk to real estate prices in some. areas of london that doesn't have good access to public services so i think that the fellas actually playing a high risk game in this regard and this may really constitute a blow to the city of london as it does to you bet so we will see what happens i think what the outcome of this process. the outcome of this process will very much determine. the country's cities and regions proceed with this the over c.e.o. has said. obviously they're going to fight this decision and they say that it's
based largely on what they say is a bad reputation. preceding it you think that's fair criticism i think what the sharing economy does is that it constitutes a tradeoff between flexibility and security and the labor market functions best when you have both so what legislators should do is to make sure that this gig economy this sharing economy can exist side by side with normal we the traditional labor market and that requires legislations to make sure that both function well imperiling car benefit for a thanks very much for being with us europe why is the first country in the world to make it legal to grow and sell marijuana but now the new industry is facing a threat no one predicted daniel schorr and the reports from the capital montevideo . this is nothing new it's just that mary won there is now after
a long campaign totally legal in europe why the business has been booming we think that the risk is worth. the risk as the final result of that will be. respect their right to love. to have a plan. of their houses. if they want each registered user can buy up to forty grams a month from their local pharmacy but you know guys banks are now threatening to close the accounts of those pharmacies selling the drug stopping they use of plastic cards they say they're under pressure from u.s. banks which by u.s. law cannot trade with any company linked to the illegal drug industry. we see an absurd situation that your financial situation is being penalized with strong legislation which is not in place in canada or the u.s. but this has nothing to do with drug trafficking it's totally legal europe weiss's
the us has got it wrong there marijuana industry is now legal a delegation has been to the u.s. to put their case where the industry is looking at selling outside the bank system . system is now strongly regulated very controlled the state is heavily involved so that's why we feel it will be easy to show that we have nothing to do with drug trafficking or money laundering business is being done illegal enterprises controlled by the state. he says pharmacies a queuing up to sell marijuana but the financial obstacles have been removed this is no more and this legal is growing tomatoes a backroom backstreet industry is emerging. and taking its place in mainstream europe one society is involved said.
