How can we make the sharing economy work for everyone?
Our Future of Sharing project begins with the premise that sharing is good, and that a new way of organizing an economy around sharing is a good thing too. We believe the sharing economy is here to stay and will only get much bigger over time. The way people live and work is changing, and the sharing economy is a manifestation of these larger trends and new values. Any big system change of this scale will inevitably have repercussions that need to be addressed. The sharing economy is no different. It’s time for city governments and local communities to rethink old regulations and develop new rules that fit the 21st century. Over the course of this series, we’ll explore how we can make this new system work better for those who use it, those who work within it, and those who are affected by it. This Future of Sharing project will attempt to answer the question: How can we make the sharing economy work for everyone?
