The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop

Sharing services, like Uber and AirBnB are great. They have allowed many people to make due with the current economic environment. They allow some to benefit through employment and others to benefit from reduce rates allowing those that would not otherwise be able to afford the services offered. These services are restoring people's confidence in random strangers and connecting more and more people. The sharing services are not only helping rebuild our economy but they are rebuilding our sense of community. Thank you for your time!
