The Collaborative Economy - is it an economic engine or a reaction to economic decline? What are the realities and opportunities that we face? In addition to taking a look at the concept of sharing as a planned, and profitable, economic model, we’ll also be delving into:

  • Issues of class in a system that is ostensibly a great equalizer in access to goods and services,

  • The ultimate value of a Collaborative Economy – “more for the same”, “the same for less” or simply “different”? and

  • The dark, or hidden, elements of the Collaborative Economy and how you ultimately measure success.

Our guest for this episode is Jeremiah Owyang, industry analyst and Partner at the Altimeter Group.
