The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Because I am an 80 year old single woman who is rather computer illiterate, I am writing once more, since I may have deleted my first attempt at telling my vacation rental story. Perhaps Airbnb will bail me out yet again by sending my original words that disappeared when I tried to send it on. I inherited my "Barnhouse" when my mother passed away in 2003. I have survived financially since 2006 when I created the Barnhouse as a vacation rental. It has kept me from the poor house, since I receive only $148.00 Social Security and have to create the rest of my income by teaching a voice class once a week and by keeping guests in the Barnhouse. Not only does it keep me going financially, it provides me with wonderful guests so that I do not get lonely. You can see my Vacation Rental on Airbnb "Sublime Mountain Retreat."
