The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
AirBNB has enabled an army of micro entrepreneurs and better experiences for guests. They get "real" experiences in local places. They shop local. Their money stays local vs. a mega corporation executive team. I'm a guest and host on AirBNB. I've rented AirBNB globally they're such a better experience :) Renting my home has also enabled me to own my first home and improve it through the revenues I generate. It also optimizes assets. Please encourage smart and fair sharing economy policies and don't let "old money" lobbyist try and destroy something so amazing :)
