Juliet Schor: SCORAI Colloquium on Consumption and Social Change

Professor of Sociology at Boston College, Juliet Schor, discusses her research into what has become known as the sharing economy. In her presentation, The Sharing Economy:Paradoxes of openness and distinction, Professor Schor addresses some of the claims that have been made about the sharing economy, such as: enhancing economic opportunities, spreading wealth, introducing a fundamentally different type of economic relations, the nature of self-employment, and other related issues. Her paper can be found on the Great Transition Initiative website here.
