How Should Ridesharing Be Regulated?

Hayek Auditorium
Cato Institute
1000 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest
Washington, DC 20001

Join CEPR's Dean Baker, Matthew Feeney from Cato Institute and Marc Scribner from Competitive Enterprise Institute for a discussion on ridesharing and what regulatory framework should govern this new and controversial industry.

The rise of ridesharing in the U.S. and abroad has been accompanied by complaints and concerns related to the regulation of rideshare companies such as Uber and Lyft. Reports of rideshare drivers assaulting passengers as well as worries about insurance coverage and vehicle inspections have all prompted discussion about the safety of ridesharing. In addition, market incumbents have complained that rideshare companies are unfairly flouting existing regulation.
