Next week we’ll discuss the questions: “What led to the rise of the sharing economy?” and “What factors have fuelled its growth?” We’ll also look at whether the term “sharing economy” suggests that the nature of exchange is really sharing as we normally understand it. Then there are the challenges of the sharing economy – we‘ll consider some of these and discuss how to deal with them.
In short, what we do next week will help you understand what makes the sharing economy work successfully and and how you can navigate the challenges it presents.
