The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
We've used Airbnb several times during our travels and we've discovered that we much prefer staying in private homes, over sterile, boring hotels/motels. We've met wonderful people, in their homes, and made friends with them. We also feel it is important for people to have ways to make money from home, and what better way than sharing their space with a traveler? Entrepreneurship is the American way and it should not be squelched by the Big Business Hotel/ motel chains.
