Competition Saves Lives
Talking about competition and how it is improves the lives of the average person I just saw a note about something that Uber, the ride sharing app-based car service, is doing in NYC. If you have a young child you can, for a surcharge of $10, call up something called UberFamily. This new option (competition to the NYC taxi services) allows you to get a vehicle that is equipped with a child car seat.
And now for the unintended consequences.
A company called The Car Seat Lady's now trains Uber partner drivers on how to safely secure the child car seats it is using....
How about that for free markets and competition....
