“Uber CEO: Amazon of transportation”

The uninspiring vision of a billion business

The Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi says in this Recode Code 2018 Video that he wants Uber to be the Amazon of transportation.

It baffles me that a billion dollar company cannot come up with a better vision than to compare itself and copy a concept from Amazon. Shira Ovide from Bloomberg tends to agree but Uber still is valued billions of Dollars and while not profitable at all, still gets a lot of investment money.

Our economy isn’t interested in finding new, inspirational or ground-breaking solutions—it’s interested in a return of money. Inspiration needs to come from the heart of a founder or CEO. And from customers, from people who trade with stocks. Only they can influence what becomes successful. We can change the world with our money.
