The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I have an extra bedroom in my house that I've been using to host peopke visiting from all over the world to be near Harvard University. The extra income helps me pay my mortgage and I have no health insurance right now so I am using the extra income to pay for my prescription medication and medical bills. Keep the little guy afloat here and keep airbnb doing what it does best, helping people earn a little extra income by hosting folks in their home.
