The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Wanted to let you know how sharing my house with guests is important to me and my neighborhood. I opened my house up to guests so I could meet people from around the world and share with them my city and neighborhood, both of which I am very proud of. Other positive outcomes include: Guests support businesses in my neighborhood. Revenue from sharing has helped me to make energy efficient / weatherization upgrades to house which helps to improve the value and longevity of my house and the property value of the neighborhood.
