The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I am a business owner and frequent traveler. As such I have opportunity to stay in many Airbnb locations all over the word. While I'm traveling, Airbnb gives me the opportunity to share my property with others. Airbnb has been a wonderful way to share, exchange and leverage resources. I've hosted student teachers doing internships, university students from abroad while on work-study programs in addition to the typical family or business traveler just visiting Houston. I promote the virtues Airbnb with everyone I know as an great example of the peer-to-peer business model that is sweeping the planet. I highly support Airbnb's business practices and ask you to do so as well.
