What is the Sharing Economy?

11 March 2015

So you have six jobs, a roommate, and someone is constantly borrowing your car. Welcome to the freedom of the sharing economy!


>> So, I, of course, I come from a very libertarian background.
>> You know, I’m a big Ann Randian objectivist.
>> And, the sharing economy is really what happens when you
take libertarianism, and you apply it to communism.
>> Did you say, Sharon, or sharing?
>> Sharing.
>> Well, a sharing economy is when my wife, Sharon,
takes pretty much everything that I worked for just because I
didn’t have her sign a pre-nup because I thought we were in love.
>> In a way, that’s been very productive for the startup world.
>> So, you know, a sharing economy is like,
hey, remember how you used to only have to work one job?
>> Well, now you have to work three jobs.
>> But, you get to choose those jobs.
>> Sharon, I just want to see my babies again.
>> Lot of people don’t want to,
but if everyone would start sharing economy, think about it.
>> How much better everything would be, you know.
>> I’m a changed man.
>> I don’t have my sword collection anymore.
>> And, that’s why we have wars.
>> That’s why we have sadness.
>> Yep, sharing economy.
>> Uh-huh.
>> It’s funny that you bring that up,
because I’ve been hearing that a lot since I started dating online.
>> I’ve just been doing some online dating.
>> And, apparently a sharing economy is when you go out to dinner with a girl
who you’ve met, and did you, you pay for,
you pay for everything and, then you go your way, go your separate ways.
>> A sharing economy is just one which, poor people give a little bit more,
in order for rich people to continue to have cool stuff.
>> The sharing economy.
>> Yeah, it’s, it’s, you know, I ran out of bar soap, so I use my roommate’s.
>> It has a little, it, it’s, you know, some, some hair on it.
