Fresh Pick of the Day, May 22, 2014: “Scaling the Sharing Economy, From New York to Topeka and Beyond – from Knowledge@Wharton”

From Knowledge@Wharton – “The shared economy, perhaps best known for crowd-powered marketplaces such as travel accommodation site Airbnb and transportation-focused Lyft, blossomed as the recession set in. At the same time, social platforms were establishing broad footholds. Collaborative consumption, made more feasible by evolving technology, offered consumers ways to personalize their experiences without having to own their own cars, vacation homes and items that may be out of reach financially. It also presented fresh streams of income for people with something to spare or share.”
