The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Airbnb allows me to pay my bills and help afford to live in a nice home near where I work. It also makes me feel safe booking through a reputable company. Paperwork is easy, they even help with the tax form. I need the place for family to help take care of my kids too sometimes. So I can't rent it out on a lease or full time basis.
