IN THIS SUMMARY

Technological changes and evolving societal expectations are empowering decentralized online communities and micro-entrepreneurs to do what regulators and big enterprises once did. They manage exchange, deploy capital, make markets, and create new forms of labor. While mobile technologies support this transformation, it goes far beyond technology. People are changing their behavior. They put their trust in reviews instead of brands, and in new rules of exchange instead of government regulators. In The Sharing Economy, economist Arun Sundararajan presents several concepts to help people make sense of these complex changes.
