The day after September 11th, I was watching television when an official came on air to comment about the economic crisis that was about to unfold when the stock market opened. “We know that when the market opens it is going to be very bad.

Trump's possible national-security tariffs on autos would be socialism at its worst. Here's why they're bad for America. (F, GM, FCAU, TSLA)

The Trump administration has investigated whether auto imports are a threat to national security. If they are, Trump could slap a 25% tariff on imported cars and car parts.

The Trump Commerce Department has finished its review of whether imported cars and cars parts are a national security threat. The findings haven't yet been released, but the President now has 90...

A Bird investor explains why he thinks today's e-scooter rentals are like the original Ford Model T

The investment firm CRV invested in a later round of Bird than it usually does with startups.  But partner Saar Gur, who oversaw the investment, says it was worth paying a little more to avoid missing the boat. Gur says today's scooters will be akin to the Ford Model T when we look back in the future.  When CRV, a Massachusetts-based venture capital firm, invested in the scooter startup Bird, it was wildly different than many of its other investments. For one, Bird wasn't like anything else i...

Sorry, self-driving cars won't make your Uber ride any cheaper

Ride-hailing, on average, costs about $3 per mile currently.  Industry watchers are hopeful that self-driving cars can bring that down by removing the drivers.  However, low utilization rates and expensive software might make that tricky to make happen in reality. Automakers like GM and Ford are banking on the the assumption that if they can lower the cost per mile of self-driving taxis to $1 or less, demand will skyrocket. But a new analysis  in the Harvard Business Review suggests their mod...
