The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Renting a room in our house through Airbnb helps us make some extra money to help our daughters pay students loans. The costs of education in US got so extremely high, that now our two children (25, 32) struggle to start their adult lives. Our help is essential. Also for us being hosts is quite valuable and we meet people we would never have met if not for Airbnb. Everybody has a story and it's very inspiring. With most of our guest we are friends now and we keep in touch. Airbnb services as they are now help people travel and make this world friendlier and a better place. So don't change it!
