Price controls == SHORTAGE.  Great to read that Uber is embracing economics 101.  The "price gouging" group is a bunch of fools.   Price controls always results in shortages, just see the gas lines after Sandy!

Yay for variable pricing!  Taxi price controls (like all price controls) result in shortages!

 @TravisKalanick  @FarahCouncil Me too!   Price controls == SHORTAGE.  Look at those New Jersey fools, standing in line for gas after Sandy because their price controls meant gas suppliers would lose money brining in gas!

 @FarahCouncil You are an absolute fool!   Any price control == SHORTAGE, a fact that has been proven time and time again throughout history.   Have fun getting your taxi on NYE, I'll be paying market price to get my Uber.

 @rreisman Uber is the reasonable level.   Any price control == SHORTAGE.  It's a basic economic fact that has been proven time and time again.

 @cjsnee  @MichelleBroderick Looking for a government handout!  Price regulation = SHORTAGE.  It's simple Econ 101 that has been proven time and time again.
