The Sharing Economy Disrupts Los Angeles City Hall

Hosted by

All you need to call Uber, Lyft or other ride-sharing companies is an app on a smartphone. But that doesn’t mean they can pick you up at LA’s International Airport. It’s been the exclusive preserve of traditional taxi-cabs, and they’re not going to give up their turf without political warfare. We’ll hear how a “disruptive technology” has pitted City Council members against Mayor Eric Garcetti.

Also tonight, what happened to President Obama’s vision for the new National Monument in the Angeles National Forest and San Gabriel Mountains?
