There is a lot being said about the sharing economy at the moment, and conveniently last month Mastercard released a whitepaper The Sharing Economy: Understanding the Opportunities for Growth. I was reading it last night on the train back from London and in this post will share my notes. There are countless definitions of the sharing economy. Mastercard indicate that the natural instinct to share with one another combined with new technology that enables that sharing to happen in unprecedented ways will ensure that the sharing economy is here to stay. "..a socio-economic ecosystem that empowers people to share underutilised assets directly with others."
