Hello, I am a PhD student in economics, and I host on airbnb to help pay my rent and because it clearly raises efficiency and has helped many families. I also only stay in airbnbs when I travel because it is affordable and much nicer than almost all hotels. Not having this option would make travelling to conferences, to research sites, and just paying the rent much more difficult.
