Wasn't it Robert Maxwell who said there is no such thing as money? His view was it was only a promise on a piece of paper. Uber seems to have bought into the theory.
Apple raises an interesting question. Is the Smartphone market actually larger than the mobile phone market would have been? Hasn't it cannibalised the music player market, the camera market, the filofax market, even the taxi market (as people communicate online rather than going to see eachother)?
But the biggest question is over the 1%. I'm reminded of the old story of the guy driving past an American and a Brit in a Rolls Royce.
The American says "I'm going to try hard and one day I'll have a car like that".
The Brit says "How dare he have a car like that - I'm going to scratch it."
Perhaps Oxfam should employ more Americans. Then we can all have our 7 billionth of something worth having a share of.
