The Surveillance Economy and Extreme Income Inequality: You Can't Have One Without the Other - YouTube
Uber and Airbnb is equal to informal economy (uncertainty) = staying power only for owner of marketplace (wealth accumulation & ultimate bargain power as owner of (monopoly/oligopoly form of marketplace). Silicon Valley made the informal economy cool again bc its on your smartpone (homescreen). Uber & Co are becoming, as owners of said marketplace, the new super elite (with no shared economic interest & no stakeholder in local economy). Disenfranchised & Price war. // The perfect, crazy, too good to be true, idea - will crash eventually (accumulating wealth with little to no input [see stakeholder theory/shared economic interest/long-term views and interest!]). // Start-up Lesson/Advice: "cost of choice" & paying computation with advertising = corruption (Google, Facebook &Co) paying (Wall Street, short-termism [Fast Food]) for micro-management of your life, of your choice. = U loosing free will. // youtu.be/kZO8mgarU0k youtu.be/XdEuII9cv-U youtu.be/cCvf2DZzKX0 youtu.be/5puB_7Q2n74

Drowning in venture capital, mobile startups are waging unsustainable price wars | PandoDaily
upside of this up-cycle/up-business cycle? everyone with a little bit of chops and a MVP with little bit of traction can get capital. Downside? Everyone spends their capital. Would never happen in a down cycle. Down cycles are great, you've got more time to build a great team, product and brand. .... "[L]ook at ecommerce 2.0 companies like Fab and EcoMom who blew millions in capital acquiring customers at unsustainable rates, hoping for some magic lifetime customer value to justify the spending. (It didn’t.) “There’s a tension between growing fast enough and having a disastrous bottom line,” Jeff Clavier, Founder of SoftTech VC, says. Clavier was an early investor in Fab, among others playing this game. “If you don’t have growth you’re stuck, but if you have growth with economics not viable in the long term, [you’re making] a real bet that you’ll be funded nevertheless.” [...] companies aren’t developing a sustainable business model. [Freemium works better with Software Product.]
