Uber bites again. Today, the venture-backed start-up launched its less controversial ride-sharing app UberX in Zagreb, Croatia. This post-socialist country has climbed on the bandwagon of the sharing economy after an already burdensome move to the market economy. The taxi sector’s reaction in Croatia is very indicative of the abhorrence by which vested interests ”welcomed” market liberalisation. More dramatically, the arrival of Uber threatens to exacerbate relations between the state-business nexus and citizens’ demands.
