Sharing Economy

About

The main idea behind shareconomy is not to buy a service or material goods so as to own it or use it alone. Instead, it’s the idea of sharing the benefits of the service or goods with other people.

Startups like Uber and Airbnb have long been firmly won the preference of users to its convenience and quality of service. At the same time, they have caused protests - consider how many taxi drivers protested against Uber, even getting noted in the daily news. These projects are not “just another startup,” they qualify for a special niche that shows first signs of the new economy, a new (or, renewed) type of economic relationships between people. The sharing economy is the general name for startups like BlaBlaCar, Lyft, Uber, Airbnb, and many other that offer the model of joint consumption.

For many projects, joint consumption has become a logical continuation. One of the prime examples of collective projects where the creators have spent a time to create it while being employed elsewhere, was, of course, Wikipedia. Crowdfunding or co-financing concept is another shareconomy offsprings as well as online education services like Coursera.
