The "Crazy" Sharing Economy


Published on

A collection of the most bizarre (yet brilliant) examples in the sharing economy.

  • The collaborative economy is a human activity that seeks to generating value in common and that is based on new forms of work organization. It relies on a more horizontal than vertical organization, sharing of goods, spaces and tools (use rather than possession), the organization of citizens 'network' or communities and generally intermediation internet platforms (except for models such as reciprocal knowledge exchange networks).

    The collaborative economy is understood in a broad sense, which includes collaborative consumption (GAC couchsurfing, carpooling, etc..) But also the modes of collaborative life (coworking, Colocation, shared housing), collaborative funding (crowdfunding, ) Transition initiatives, contributory output (digital fabrication, DIY, Fablabs 3D printer maker spaces) and open culture.

    This type of economµy in a context of mistrust of institutional actors of the traditional capitalist system, economic crisis, but also environmental ethics.
    It takes different forms (sharing economy, functionality economy, economy solutions, economy in peer-to-peer) based on the types of goods and services concerned or purpose (consumer empowerment, eco-efficiency).
