The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Airbnb has been a great thing in my life. I have made lasting relationships with complete strangers who took a chance renting my sofa. I have nothing but praise for Airbnb. The extra income helps finance my mortgage payment and my worldly travels. I tell everyone I meet who enjoys traveling about Airbnb. I no longer rent hotel rooms. They aren't personal and only in it for a profit. Hotel owners need to fear people like me. My customer service isn't a service, it's just me being me. I enjoy meeting new people and showing them my city. I haven't had anyone complain about their experience(other than the train horn late at night). There is no need for the government to get involved. It's my space and I should be able to do with it as I please. The city should thank me for being someone who shows visitors what there is to offer. LONG LIVE AIRBNB
