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.
