What's with the sneery tone of the article. The Chinese have the ability to get people into orbit something America and the other WASP remnant nations can no longer manage.

In the real world we have licenced taxis which are insured and inspected. Unlike in America that doesn't mean they can get minor medical treatment for exorbitant fees and nothing. The drivers are tested before they can get a licence, they even check to see if they have a criminal record. The taxi is tested to a higher standard than the standard annual test on cars. The meter is inspected to make sure it isn't rigged. It is difficult for muricans to understand that laws and regulations are actually enforced and not just used for imprisoning poor people, apartheid, and oppression.
This libertarian wet dream taxi service is as stupid as any other libertarian neocon notion. Subverting the rules and regulations which have been shown to be necessary for public safety just isn't a concept indoctrinated gun licking Americans understand.
There are some pretty stupid numbers being thrown around in some of the comments. IBM have started that by 2020 batteries will have ten times the go they have now and they will be in use on the road. You can bet against them if you like. Induction charging is the way forward, possibly with a rail running along the road.
"China is trying hard to avoid that rapid inflation, as it killed tens of thousands of Indian citizens who could not move with the times and starved."
Wow Inflation actually kills people, that's what you think and write. Everything is OK in China because the US has a higher suicide rate. You do understand that the working conditions and terms in the US are third world and is the modern definition of barbarism.
