Decided the Seattle City Council last week to retreat from its plan to impose a tax of $ 275 per employee within local companies, a measure that was unanimously approved last month as a way to address the displacement crisis city and the ability to afford housing costs, the decline after that baulked many of the businesses in the city for the payment of such tax, including Amazon, no one need to remind Seattle that Amazon is looking publicly for the second city to establish its main hub, so I bowed to the city council.
It was announced rahm Emanuel rahm is Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago, he asked the company Boring, it is a company other companies Elon musk Elon Musk, founder and CEO of the industry luxury electric car Tesla Tesla and founder of space company SpaceX SpaceX, build a tunnel of high-speed transmission from O’Hare International Airport to the city centre, she said Boring she will pay in full The costs of establishing oil, without the use of public funds, but is also likely to have a long-term lease for the project, where you can take all of the revenue from the private system.
And you must have also heard about services and problems of electric bikes named scooter, which spread last spring dramatically in some American cities, where the emerging companies that run such services make a bet bold represent the post at the moment and worry about the legal stuff later, it seems that bet is paying off, where planning officials in the city of San Francisco and Santa Monica, California and the city of Austin, Texas for legalization.
The purple Bird, which is the company emerging the most ambitious between a scooter, collect money now through the assessment of the value of two million dollars, as just weeks after process of collecting funds through the assessment of the value of a million dollars.
Also announced the company Domino’s Pizza Domino’s Pizza about the plan to fix the roads of America in collaboration with municipalities, as part of the program, will be Domino’s Pizza, which operates at the present time to highlight itself as a technology, with its logo on the road because it has become to replace the state pay for the repair of roads and pavements which gives the option of printing its logo.
It seems that the American turned in a scene very unpleasant to the duration of the oppressed of the companies that used its wealth to invest in trade and industry for profit in accordance with the amount of women of capitalism, as cities all over the country of an increase in the cost of housing and in transport systems and infrastructure crumbling, however, there is little support from federal authorities or state authorities, but the efforts to raise funds for Local Projects besieged by conservatives, while measures to build more housing is stopped.
And technology companies within this vacuum at a steady pace depending on the returns of the past which they have to functions, and delegations of innovation outside the box that they provide, so that you get companies on a large scale in determining the future of cities, they are moving in more of the main services and at the rate of your task with the governments of the cities invincible, and local officials themselves at the mercy of the technology, they can not live without money technology, even if the corporate technical interests in a blur all priorities, other civil.
Became technology companies of the local authority the most powerful in America, in spite of the technical feel to flourish the direction of the politicians, but a lot of influencers in the technology industry see the city now as a book the perfect foundation for the kind of planned in areas such as transport and logistics, housing, and so I learned the technology industry how to attract and within the halls of city councils, and they began to win everywhere.
And one of the reasons that makes tech companies able to demonstrate a greater say in local issues is that many of the other local institutions, from small businesses to the local newspapers, lost a lot of its influence, thanks largely to the internet.
Includes Daniel Hopkins Daniel Hopkins, the world of politics at the University of Pennsylvania in his new book “the United States is increasing” that the social networking and digital media to create a system of Ecology of the media obsessed with the increasingly national system of political funding that allows contributions to flow at the national level, and the marginalization of local issues as a result.
This led to the fall of the local media to undermine the attention to local issues, where technology companies have started to note that their platforms provide no direct access to the tools to leverage new local, which manifests itself strongly through the company services, ride uber, Uber, Travis kalanick Travis Kalanick, the company’s founder and Chief Executive of the now-ousted, from entering dozens of cities without asking for permission, with difficulty to get her out again.
And aweber to fight the points of local taxi drivers who spent decades in building its base of customers, and tried aweber compensation for the support of the political leadership and the people, as the company had, through the app, a direct connection to the thousands of drivers who were making a living from their services, and the company was able when the organizers are trying to shut down the conversion of drivers to the defenders and used political pressure at the grassroots level to ensure their continued existence.
She worked the plan well, they tried to bill de blasio Bill de Blasio, Mayor of New York City in 2015 to stop the growth of aweber, and got the support of most of the city council, and start the Battle aweber impossible, but she used the base of her hair, where he began to talk about it in case she got out of work the drivers are blacks and Hispanics will lose their jobs, will suffer the customer at the mercy of taxi owners, which helped her win the Battle.
And the conversations currently about the extent of the positive what to get, since the sink routine government and local officials hate change, of course, and technology companies, including companies must be innovative to do exactly, but technology companies have become concerned at the local level as invincible, as once the threat is to halt growth, can companies like Amazon to make several American cities care.
As it became bill de blasio Mayor of the city of New York, which was seen in the former on that of the critics of the technology, tends to favor Amazon with trying to attract Jeff bezos the opening of the second seat of the company in New York.
It seems that the time when the United States government pay the costs of the infrastructure and the American people a say in local services important has ended with the dominance of technology companies on the American cities, so that the moving company aweber layers, while the moving company Byrd party, and the company Elon musk the tunnels on their own account, and become a Domino’s Pizza classes of America.
