" Even as Bush was announcing its birth though, the ownership society was rotting from the inside out. Maybe we're all learning though. And it's the young who are leading the way toward a different form of consumption, a collaborative consumption: renting, lending and even sharing goods instead of buying them.

Ceux-ci affirment d’ailleurs que cette pratique est en passe de devenir un « mouvement ». Un mouvement qui va des places de marchés mondiales comme eBay ou Craiglist à des secteurs de niches comme le prêt entre particuliers (Zopa) ou les plates-formes de partage de voitures (Zipcar) . « La consommation collaborative modifie les façons de faire des affaires et réinvente non seulement ce que nous consommons, mais également comment nous consommons », affirment ses défenseurs.
