Discussion: Uber-Didi merger

After a bruising battle of cash-burning and market grabbing, popular ride-hailing app Uber has slammed the brakes on its China operations, and merged with rival Didi Chuxing. This might be a win-win deal for both companies, but what does the marriage of these two giants mean for consumers and drivers? Some are concerned about rising charges, while others are worried about Didi’s position as a monopoly in the industry. For more on what’s on the road ahead for Didi and the market as a whole, we speak with Andy Mok, founder of Red Pagoda Resources, which provides professional services for start-ups in China, Dr. Anil K. Gupta, the Michael Dingman chair in strategy and globalization at University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, and Max Wolff, professor of economics from New School University.
