The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
The sharing economy has dramatically increased my quality of life. Resources such as Uber allow me to: - achieve better value - feel safe - accomplish more (increased convenience) - obtain better service Further, they have helped break down archaic institutions (e.g. taxi companies in major cities) which have received too much protection and provided too poor of a service for too long. The service economy's innovation should be celebrated and applied more widely. Kyle
