Sharing Economy

From parked cars to spare bedrooms, the sharing economy – with services such as food and grocery deliveries, ridesharing and short-term rentals – is making our lives easier and creating new opportunities for Americans to earn extra income.

The sharing economy has built avenues to entrepreneurship for people across the country and revolutionized the way we travel and experience our own cities and towns.

Many local and state governments recognize the positive impact of sharing economy companies in their communities – but not everywhere. Policies to regulate the sharing economy should not stifle innovation or limit consumer choices.
