controversy surrounding App-based cabs and their pricing has been characterised by much demagoguery We seek to leaven the debate with straightforward economic rationality Given exogenous factors such as the weather and the time of day the instantaneous demand and supply of taxis vary with the price the former negatively and the latter positively At a given price they vary with the exogenous factors Given the exogenous factors a price that equates demand and supply is called an equilibrium price This price leaves no potential gains-from-trade on the table: Everyone who wants to buy or sell the service at that price can do so A higher (respectively lower) than equilibrium price is inefficient because some cabbies and some customers can negotiate a mutually beneficial trade at a lower (respectively higher) price The state fixes two parts of the taxi market First it limits supply by mandating a permit for operating a taxi thereby making the supply of taxis very inelastic Second it fixes the price of the service Unfortunately this price is rarely the equilibrium price because changing exogenous factors move demand and supply leading to a fluctuating equilibrium price For instance during peak commuting hours or severe weather conditions demand usually exceeds supply at the mandated price At off-peak times the opposite is true Both situations are inefficient as mutually beneficial trades remain unrealised Share This Article Related Article Hitherto such trade has been difficult for two reasons First the potential traders have to find each other and until now there has not been a platform for making such matches at low cost in real time Second even if the potential traders randomly bump into each other haggling imposes a significant cost in terms of time and psychological distress App-based cab services solve both problems The software matches in real time and at low cost customers and cabbies who are willing to trade at the specified price As both parties accept the price haggling is irrelevant By replacing random physical matching and haggling with a virtual platform for precise real-time matching of traders and auction-based pricing App-based cabs implement the mutually beneficial trades implied by demand-supply mismatches While prices increase (as they should) when demand is greater than supply they also fall (as they should) when supply is greater than demand App-based cabs bring other benefits too First the taxi market becomes more competitive as there is a larger number of suppliers across the quality spectrum The days of the neighbourhood taxi-stand being a local monopoly with all that a monopoly entails are over Hence the protests from such quarters Other than legal and administrative barriers entry into the taxi market is easy because the required software is easily acquired and the entrant does not have to invest in a car fleet since one only needs to incentivise car owners to acquire an appropriate license and become part or full-time cabbies Second the ability of the supply-side of the market to respond flexibly to price signals makes the taxi supply far more elastic than under a rigid permit regime Third there is a marked improvement in the quality of service relative to the neighbourhood taxi-stand benchmark This should enable a switch away from private cars to public taxis leading to lower congestion and pollution Fourth off-peak prices are much lower than those of traditional cabs Indeed they rival auto-rickshaw prices hence their protests Peak-time prices are higher than the mandated price However the mandated price is irrelevant at peak-times since every cabbie can and does charge a premium at such times Ask any commuter The notion that your cabbie is an economic idiot who abides by the mandated price whatever be the true economic value of his service is a shibboleth that should be buried next to other statist nonsense What is the proper role of the state in this market It is certainly not to ban flex-price cabs or regulate prices since this market is very competitive If we learn anything from economic history it is that trade at market-determined prices is a remarkably resilient institution with far greater embedded intelligence and creativity than any state authority Not only are bans and pricing fiats generally counter-productive they are also ineffective if the targets of such coercive actions have the means and motives to subvert the state’s directives So the state should concentrate on its legitimate functions of implementing quality-of-service standards and more generally enforcing traffic laws WATCH INDIAN EXPRESS VIDEOS HERE Economic rationality of course does not prevent ill-advised market interventions by rent-seeking politicians and supposedly do-gooding but ultimately pernicious and perfidious pressure groups with an ideological or business axe to grind Economic history is replete with examples of the former while the manufactured hysteria around GM crops and net-neutrality are examples of the latter One can only hope that better sense prevails in the case of the humble taxis Sudhir is a professor of Economics Delhi School of Economics
