The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I use Airbnb to share my condo in FL which I own as a 2nd home. I have been trying to find work in FL but the job prospects in my small town in FL are slim to none. Home sharing has made it economical to keep my home in FL and work in NYC at the same time. I also make it affordable for visitors to stay at my condo and that attracts travelers on a modest budget. Please keep home sharing businesses and websites like Airbnb and Flipkey alive because they make it sustainable for all of us.
