The centre lobbied the FTC to take action on Google nearly a decade ago. That helped lead to the settlement in which Google agreed to a 20-year...

That has further complicated one of Uber's biggest challenges — proving it can mature into a profitable business nearly a decade into its existence. That's something that CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has predicted Uber will eventually do, but for now...
