There are laws being put in place everywhere to stop them. It's anticompetitive apparently, total bullshit.

Cab companies can't offer a good service so they sue Uber.

Hotels are expensive and shit and they lobby for laws like it's now illegal to rent a room in New York for less than a month.

This is true. I had 2 black people stay and they were the worst. One trashed my room and when I destroyed him on the review he bitched to airbnb that I hurt his feelings and airbnb took it down. I tried to give niggers the benefit of the doubt but they are in fact scum

I wont rent to blacks anymore

The dude literally walkes in with purple drank and chicken wings and was a CEO marketing mastermind for P diddy and other rappers. That should have been a red flag, but my white guilt didnt want to be a racist.

They have no concept of property or have any regard for others. It's bizarre, Ive never lived around niggers, as I grew up in rural Wisconsin, and I thought they just got a bad rap.

Airbnb and uber are each creating a monopoly for themselves. They are putting taxis and hotels out of business in every state. I shouldn't need to explain why monopolies are bad for the economy. (1 company owns everything puts all competitors out of business then Jack's up rates and offers slave labor wages. Then Noone can do anything because they are too big) they are able to get around taxes because terminology assumes a local dispatcher for uber or an owned space or property for airbnb. It needs to be updated and hasn't so the law interprets it as a different service when it's the same thing.

I don't think anyone (other than the cab companies) wants to "stop" them. They just want an even playing field.
If one competitor has to pay taxes the other one doesn't, that's a huge disadvantage.

Something else that people can get away with is renting out a place. Then putting the same space up on Airbnb that the actual landlord doesn't know about. And splitting the space between multiple people and charging each of them an overall more expensive rent for a place you don't own (which by law is only considered an acceptable living space for the landlord when exactly 1 person pays to stay there) Airbnb isn't subject to the same living space requirements so you can room as many people as you like in crappy living conditions.

Usually they run by the city, and when the city plays in the game and makes the rules there is a conflict of interest that is somehow ok becuase democrats love thier shit government monopolies, but god forbide that private sector get to invent, work, ans inovate to become the best in the industry.

I hate anti trust laws, absolutely rediculous. Imagine how great Microsoft would be if the gov wouldnt have destroyed them. We all probably will live shorter lives from that injustice. But i guess we'll never know what could have been.

Except anyone can establish a company that offers just a fucking app. Airbnb and Uber cannot possibly enforce their monopoly if they ever got one.

They are putting taxis and hotels out of business
So? Are you saying that we should have put anti-automobile laws to protect the poor, struggling horse industry?

StonedTime
StonedTime

@Deadlyinx
Selling a wagon vs selling a car is a completely different thing. And thousands of different automobile companies sprang up and built cars. Just because there are a few businesses trying to copy uber doesn't mean it's not a monopoly. You need many businesses qdoing the same thing. Look at the major cable companies. They each got together and split up territories promising not to market their services in those areas. It's still a monopoly just a contractual one.

The objective of a business is to become a monopoly.

Why is the reward for innovation and excellence in running a great business is getting punished? Monopolies are great. Its a shame standard oil was destroyed by the government. Rockefeller took a useless substance and fueled the entire country into a revolution of wealth and what thanks does he get? "Fuck you you evil greedy pig gimme your business so we can fuck it up"

I don't trust Craigslist and neither does anyone else. The difference between air bnb and Craigslist is that it's not anonymous. People want to see your place recommended by other people or that you are a good tenant. Craig's list promices none of this and offers no accountability if you pay for a space and Noone is there to let you in. It is better than a hotel because it is often cheaper or offers unique places not offered by hotels. Also air bnb is available everywhere making it extremely convenient. This is why they are billionaires.

A free market monopoly is great. Government lobbied and run monopolies are not.

Crazy_Nice

@Stark_Naked
Then I guess we should abolish taxes and close down all public schools and close down all public parks and museums and auction the places off to the highest bidder? In fact why do we even need a President or Congress. I don't want my hard earned money helping anyone but myself. Why should I get punished with taxes for trying to make a living? Those other poor people who need public programs and safety should have worked harder with no money for education or food or protection. And now we've reached the part where we argue over what the point or purpose of a government is in the first place. The government is there to make sure that people are protected and are secure in their finances. In order to have any form of government people have to pay taxes out of their own hard earned money. Rich people would just hire tons of security and install security systems for protection if they could.
The objective of a business is to make as much money as possible. If that means becoming a monopoly then OK. The fact of the matter is that a few people owning all of the money is horribly bad for the economy. A single person doesn't ever need to spend billions of dollars. They may buy a few nice homes, nice clothes, a few cars but the fact is that most of their money will never touch the economy for generations to come. What happens when you have a few people that control all of the businesses is the middle class disappears the upper class stays small or the same size and the lower class becomes enormous. In your version of the optimal economy most of America just become working class slaves making barely enough money to live and the top fraction of a percent of people own so much money they don't even know what to do with more than 1 percent of it. Yes they worked for their money but is that fair to people when the standard of living has dropped so low because rich people are entitled to the entirety of the economy?

making something illegal is the same as taxing it
So instead of taxing gasoline to allow the consumer to decide if s/he is willing to pay more for something, gasoline should just be illegal? You're making a stupid argument bub. The example argument I made is purposefully stupid to show how stupid it is to think a tax on a service is the same as outlawing it; reductio ad absurdum

You are the one who said some taxi drivers own their taxi, so the question the other user asked is a legitimate one. Also they could quit the taxi service and work for uber using their personal car.

I have a question to folks who are used to airbnb.
The family of my wife has a property in a touristic location of Italy, since italian tourists are generally scum we were thinking to market to a international crowd via airbnb.
Problem is that i don't live there and the folks who should hand the keys and clean can't speak a single word of english.
Would it be feasible to communicate with hosted people through phone or email or in your opinion this will lead to complains and bad reviews?

@MPmaster
But aren't poor whites that live in cities, influenced by black ghetto culture, and therefore are likely to act like them?

I mean, if those statistics are nationwide, they might be skewed in favor of poor white communities that aren't particularly influenced my black culture (such as poor rednecks and hillbillies). If we count poor whites that live in the cities, the difference (while still not nullified) might not be as big.
