- Best case scenario, Uber increasingly looks like this generation’s Amazon.com-- a company that will have to ignore everyone and keep raising money to grind it out until the economics suddenly work. That’s not a bad thing to be, but depends on Jeff Bezos like execution to make it out the other side. Uber could do that. It has the cash, the lead, the revenues, the backers, and the Machiavellian do anything attitude to get there. It’s wisely held off going public so none of us know what’s really going on with these economics beyond well choreographed leaks.
But worst case, it may be this generation’s WebVan.
