Sharing Economy

by shydes

Meelen and Frenken (2015) define the sharing economy as the interactions of people temporarily letting other people use their under-utilised resources, with or without monetary exchange. Services such as Uber or TaskRabbit thus do not qualify as part of the sharing economy according to Meelen and Frenken (2015) but should rather be considered part of the ‘on-demand economy’ or the ‘gig economy’.
