The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
In our travels to 3 different countries around the world, we used airbnb home sharing and as a result we were able to see how others live and stay in places that were unbelievably great. also met good people that we could never have met without airbnb. this is not about staying places cheap. its about enhancing travel experiences by sharing in ordinary people's lives. as an added feature, i have had scary experiences in motels, but never in our airbnb experiences. this way of sharing homes should be protected and encouraged.
