    Abstract

    Uber has operated in Buenos Aires since April 2016, when its arrival produced a disruptive force that would span economics, law, and politics. The taxi industry quickly took legal action against the company, which prior to 2016, was something of a protected service, with strong regulations and an influential trade union. In Taxis vs. Uber: Courts, Markets, and Technology in Buenos Aires, Juan M. del Nido explores how and why an industry with robust legal and structural protections was readily cast aside when a foreign competitor entered the market.
