When asked about the changing expectations on Wall Street, Khosrowshahi explained that we live in complicated times, and during complicated times, investors demand more than just growth at any cost. They want growth, but also earnings at the same time. That's why Uber has made changes to keep the trust of shareholders.
Khosrowshahi added that Uber is ideally suited for recessions, because it has low fixed costs and the diversity in its businesses means that mobility and delivery aren't typically down at the same time. Uber's size and scale will help it weather any economic storm, Khosrowshahi said.
