The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
The sharing economy is one of the most incredible new ventures in business and a great way to stimulate an economy that has been struggling. It should not go completely un-regulated but it also should not be held to the same rules as older systems that are in place. In fact the complete opposite should take place. This is a chance for old systems which no longer work well in our world to catch up and take notice of what these new platforms allow. There is no reason why they can't also take advantage of their lead to get their best foot forward.
