The Sharing Economy is focus in new report by SSE researchers
The underlying motives for the sharing economy is to reduce untapped overcapacity in both goods and services in order to match supply and demand at low transaction costs. As new digital platforms are replacing traditional intermediaries, new structures are created for both society and business.
The newly launched report The Sharing Economy: Embracing Change with Caution is written by Robin Teigland, Associated Professor and Claire Ingram, PhD student, both at the Stockholm School of Economics, and Anna Felländer, Chief Economist of Swedbank.
