The State of the Sharing Economy with Rachel Botsman

Static Preview

Streamed live on May 19, 2016

The sharing economy has grown rapidly in the last 5 years, and is now popularized by big players such as Airbnb and Uber. But with growth, come growing pains. As the sector comes of age, what steps need to be taken now to unlock its full social potential and to ensure it remains an economic model that empowers not exploits? Rachel Botsman visits the RSA to consider where it's heading next – who will be the next breakout venture to be cited alongside Airbnb and Uber and what about the smaller ventures that are critical to the healthy diversity of the sector?; and to explore the big issues we need to tackle now, from platform culture to monopolization, the power of providers and the future of work.
Six minute version is here.
