The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I have been hosting AirBNB guests for several months. This extra bit of income has allowed me to have a sense of security in hard economic times. Because of this income, I am able to put some money in the back each month and even go on the occasional trip. I run a small nonprofit organization and my annual salary will never be very much. AirBNB is important to me and my family.
