The Road Ahead For The Sharing Economy

The sharing economy proposes a radical new way of organising resources. Owing to increased connectivity, the broad penetration of mobile devices and the streamlining of digital payment systems, idle resources, like flats or car rides, can be easily redirected to potential customers. It’s an idea that is proving extraordinarily remunerative. Uber is currently the most valuable private company in the world, with the likes of Airbnb and its Chinese rival Didi Kuaidi following close behind.
