An item about the woes at Uber in the latest issue of Fortune states: "Before, Uber was 'controversial.' Now its bad behavior could serve as justification for tighter regulation."
I've discussed before how Well Fargo's bad behavior creates justification for those who are pro-regulation. Now blogger James Kwak uses it as a reason to eliminate arbitration. Yes, that would give consumers the ability to file a class action against Wells Fargo for they were harmed by the bank's credit card scheme (or even if they weren't). But it would also give consumers the ability to go after smaller targets, like dealers. Wells Fargo can afford to either fight the case in court or settle. Dealers, not so much.
