The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Having the option of utilizing a service such as Airbnb is important, as it can provide extra income for those in need. We are using this service for extra income to complete a small home remodel. We have been involved for several months and all has gone well so far. We are still analyzing the pros and cos. Pros are the extra income; Cons, the lack of privacy and small inconvenience. We have not opted to share our entire home at this time, but only a bedroom when we are home.
