The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I rent out a room in my house @ 7 days a year. I do it to meet new people. whenever I travel I want to go to someone's home. I have never had a bad experience, although I can see that it could happen. It also could happen in a motel/hotel. The sharing economy is an important part of having community and people relating to strangers. I have not ever used uber or lyft but I will next time the need arises. I have fear of using taxis.
