(Column) Sharing Economy

One of the recent hot topic “Shareing Economy.” AirBnB, Uber are great example of sharing economy. People are more and more concerning “not having but sharing” life style. however, there are also some controversial matters. Regal issue, fraud, argument, etc.

In my Opinion, Sharing Economy is based on trustworthy and honesty. If human being is naturally honest, sharing economy is right to penetrate into culture.

I have still skeptical about that.

There are huge information asymmetry even IT is highly developed. It may cause Lemon market and accelerate bad money drives out good money.

Sharing economy seems to be OK so far. Nontheless to say, it may elaborate these problem when sharing economy expanding globally.
