The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I heard about airbnb through friends. I got interested now it is helping me to pay my bills. it is very safe and trustable. My guests have their profile and I am able to accept whom I wand or decline whom I don't want.Yet all guests were nice, responsible, respectfull.They are using my furniture as their own. This is very important middle-class families to earn extra money and use it for many expenses like mortgage payments, education expense,food,gas...etc. Airbnb's hosting and traveling helping the local economic activity for small business. Hosts are shoping for their guests to provide best place possible and travelers spending a lot of money at the restaurants, cafes, bars, grocery stores, transportations and all. If they sit home non of this going to happen. Because Airbnb hosting is giving them trust&safety and a comfartable stay that they cannot find in a hotel room.
