To "Uber" or not to "uber" ?

Lately, the debate surrounding the topic of regulating the collaborative/shared economy has greatly intensified. From government official and business owners, to academics and regular bar goers,  everyone has an opinion on the question: To regulate collaborative platforms or to not regulate them, in other words: to "uber" or not to 'uber"? 

This is NOT a "crappy" conversation!

Recently, there has been a lot of talk about an ecological sanitation system. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 2.5 billion people have no access to safe, clean toilets and 1 billion are forced to defecate in the open. The devastating consequences of these practices include an estimated 1 million preventable deaths per year,
primarily from dysentery-like diarrheal diseases.
