The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I live in Providence, RI. The income that I am able to earn from Airbnb keeps me afloat in an incredibly challenging economic landscape in RI. I went through a separation and came out the other side of an destructive relationship that left me in a dire financial situation, but with the asset of my house, I was able to be financially independent. Renting rooms in my house has allowed me to keep my house through this difficult time. I don't know what I would do if something happened to this income stream.
