How The Sharing Economy Is Reshaping Capitalism

Zipcar Cofounder Says The On-Demand Economy Is Changing The Nature Of Work

September 20, 2015

When Robin Chase started the rideshare company Zipcar in 1999, she had no idea whether or not the idea would take off. While the idea of sharing a common car might have been a novel idea back then, these days it's the new normal, thanks in part to the so-called sharing economy. Robin says the business model behind companies like Uber and Airbnb is here to stay, and will upend traditional industrial capitalism.



I think it might be worthwhile to provide a counterpoint to what the "sharing economy" really is. It might be worth interviewing Janelle Orsi. Thanks for considering it.
