The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I think the Sharing Economy is a one of the most innovative ways that our American society has come up with to combat today's economic slowdown. We all as society members are trying to conserve our resources by sharing with each other. What better way are there to show that the we the Americans are working together to save our economy and save our country? When we have extra things that we are using all the time, why not sharing it with other fellow citizens so that it can be better used? Anyone who is against the sharing economy is just afraid of the bigger trend that the majority of our society is embracing. The sharing economy is currently saving people from having to foreclosing on their homes or having to cut their kid's summer camps, and is helping families paying college tuitions for their children. Why not let people share? Why not? Sharing economy is the best way for us as a society to conserve resources and be more efficient by sharing.
