IEA Conversations

What’s Next for Uber and the Gig Economy?

September 26, 2017

We're joined by Diego Zuluaga, Head of Tech Policy at the IEA, and Digital Officer Madeline Grant, as they discuss Uber and the gig economy in the light of last week’s decision from TfL not to reissue Uber’s licence.

The pair discuss the ruling; how it came about, and take a look at some of TfL’s motivations.

They also explore what the decision means in practice - for the 40,000 drivers who earn a living from the platform, for the app’s 3.5 million users in London, and for the broader future of tech and innovation in Britain.
