And who funds these bounties? Remember, bounties are outgoing costs, not incoming revenue.
Also, where does your proper funding come from? With your Uber/Lyft/et al example, who pays for the vehicle purchasing, the vehicle registration, the vehicle modifications (you can’t just slap a factory spec vehicle out on the road, it has to go through the proper regulation-led homologation process for the territory you’re operating in, plus additional mods to meet operational requirements specific to the business), the local taxi/hackney licence, the fuel for the vehicles, vehicle maintenance (repairs, tyres, regulation change adherence, etc), the driver validation and onboarding process, the support staff hiring and training process, the backend infrastructure costs, the backend maintenance costs, PR, HR, legal, security, et cetera, et cetera.
These are massive upfront and ongoing capital and operating costs if you want to construct a demand-led, always available business concern. Even if it’s just one person and a car, that’s 5 figures easy for the car, a few hundred a year for the local government licences, fuel usage dependent on weight of demand, MOT, vehicle tax, mobile internet, website, database, app, support for the app …
Plus the fact that there are existing commercial entities at work, all competing, all innovating. You could try to persuade one to forego profits, but all of them? Suddenly, you’re at a commercial disadvantage, so even if you can get people to use your service on the basis that you’re a not-for-profit concern, many won’t care, and will go for the service that’s cheaper and/or more useful. Then you’ll discover the hard way why not-for-profits and and co-ops generally don’t operate large multinational businesses in cutthroat industries.
I didn’t say co-operatives couldn’t do anything. You asked if commercial companies should be turned into co-ops. I disagree.
If my answers frighten you, then you should cease asking scary questions.
