Product description

Review

Information technology is disrupting a host of industries including transportation, hotels, banks, and marketplaces. The very nature of work is changing. Sundararajan offers an insightful guide to the forces shaping our economy today -- and tomorrow.

(Hal Varian, Chief Economist, Google)^

Fortunes have already been made in the sharing economy, yet the biggest impact on business and our daily lives is yet to come. There's no better guide to this transformation than Arun Sundararajan's book.

(Erik Brynjolfsson, co-author of The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Time of Brilliant Technologies)^

Sundararajan has taken all the loose talk about the sharing economy and given it a rigorous and readable treatment. He makes it clear that there is no one model for these new economic forms, but that taken together, they represent a profound shift in how we think about everything from utility to capital to labor to employment.

(Clay Shirky, author of Cognitive Surplus and Here Comes Everybody)^

So all in all, a very interesting book by one the most knowledgeable researchers on the sharing economy. Well worth a read.

(The Enlightened Economist)^

Sundararajan knows his stuff. He's an award winning scholar who writes with a clarity that masks the compleity of his subject.

(Finance and Development)^

In his new book, Arun Sundararajan paints a rosy picture of the revolutionary companies and platforms that are altering the nature of work.

(Strategy + Business)^

Sundararajan...sees enough value in the sharing economy.

(TED)^

His case for optimism in his new book is compelling in large part because it comes from a business-school wonk and not a "sharing!" proselytizer devoted to the literal meaning of the word.

(The Washington Post)
