The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I've had a great experience as a host and guest with Aibnb. By sharing my space I've been able to better pay my mortgage, rent, and medical bills. I had a bike accident last year and the additional income was life saving. Airbnb is safe because the messaging tools help me get to know the people I choose to share my space with. Airbnb is a great option for me as a small business owner to earn extra money. My guests guests eat out and use public transportation generating sustainable, local economic activity. Thanks so much for your support as I hope that for the sake of all mention above you will enforce and help grow Airbnb!
