The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Airbnb has given our family the ability to own a little lake condo and spend precious family time together. We use it every other weekend and rent it through Airbnb on the alternate weekends. It would not be possible for us to afford to own our little holiday home without companies like Airbnb where we can share our home with others. It benefits others as well, given there are very limited accommodation options at the lake. I hope the people's voice for supporting the sharing community will be heard.
