Numerosi sono stati gli sforzi in questi ultimi anni per classificarla, a cominciare dalla pioniera del termine collaborative consumption Rachel Botsman (autrice di “What’s Mine Is Yours: The Rise of Collaborative Consumption”), fino alle più recenti analisi di web expert come Jeremiah Owyang (“Sharing is the New Buying”).

June/July/August 2015The Post-Ownership Society How the “sharing economy” allows Millennials to cope with downward mobility, and also makes them poorer.

The Post-Ownership Society by Monica Potts

By Monica Potts Five and a half years ago, when I first moved to Washington, D.C., for a magazine job, I rented a basement apartment in a neighborhood called Bloomingdale. The area was full of Victorian-era homes that had once been occupied by mostly middle-class black families, right on the border where the Northwest quadrant of the city becomes the Northeast. But throughout the 2000s, affordable D.C. neighborhoods with trendy-sounding names like Bloomingdale drew gentrifiers who needed low rents—journalists, creative types, entry-level do-gooders, and shift-working bartenders and baristas who occasionally had Mom and Dad’s help—and so the neighborhoods changed. Last summer, I was laid off when my magazine dramatically and suddenly shrank to half its size. Britain's 'Sharing Economy' Is Creating a Desperate Servant Underclass.

The Workers Behind WeWork. Two weeks ago, office cleaners at WeWork locations throughout New York City began protesting unjust working conditions.

The Workers Behind WeWork

WeWork is an international co-working startup recently valued at ten billion dollars that is based in New York, where it is, by footprint, reportedly the fastest growing company in the city. The janitorial staff at WeWork’s New York locations are demanding higher wages, benefits, and vacation time; they are also considering joining a union.

On Wednesday, they, along with sympathetic union workers from 32BJ (the local chapter of the national Service Employees International Union), and a drum and bugle corps marched from one WeWork location, at 222 Broadway, near Fulton Center, to another, at the Charging Bull, in Bowling Green Park. Speeches were made; the band played; confused tourists looked on. WeWork cleaners are not employed by the company, but by the Commercial Building Maintenance Corp., which is a non-union shop. CBM does not employ unionized cleaners. What will the "sharing economy" mean for health care? Boomers have marveled at the return of bellbottoms, skinny ties, mullets, and moustaches.

Airbnb and the Internet Revolution - Stratechery by Ben Thompson

I suspect a big part of this is the way people view drivers vis-à-vis sublessors: despite the fact drivers work for Uber by choice — and, as Uber is eager to point out, come and go as they please — while on the clock Uber controls their rates and revenue share. Not only does this raise the question as to whether or not drivers are employees, it also provides grist for countless anecdotal stories about how a company valued at tens of billions of dollars is taking advantage of drivers earning tens of dollars per hour at best.

Of course the nature of the relationship between sublessors and sublessees differs depending on whom you ask: hotels, facing real disruption from Airbnb, accuse the startup of being a shadow hotelier focused on stealing their business. The next big thing in the sharing economy? Yesterday we were driving cars to reach work, to go shopping, or leave on vacation.

One critical adjustment they’ve made is to enthusiastically embrace the upsides of the share economy. While their parents helped Craigslist and eBay become household names, today’s youth rely on crowdsourcing and funding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo. Their collaborative ethos promotes a peer-to-peer approach that can cut out the broker and benefit both provider and consumer in the process.
