2017 Topic: Regulating the Sharing Economy: Do the Costs Outweigh the Benefits?


The sharing economy, as defined by Christopher Koopman, Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, "is any marketplace that brings together distributed networks of individuals to share or exchange otherwise underutilized assets. It encompasses all manner of goods and services shared or exchanged for both monetary and nonmonetary benefit."


The sharing economy has fundamentally changed the way people think about traditional ways of transportation and vacation stays. In 2014, it was recorded that AirBnb hosted more guests on an annual basis than the infamous Hilton Worldwide chain. In New York alone, "between 2012-2013, over 400,000 Airbnb guests visited New York City generating over $632 million in economic activity in the city." Similarly, by 2015, only a few short years after its inception, Uber was active in over 250 cities worldwide and had completed over 1 billion rides - fundamentally changing the taxi industry as we know it.


Although synonymous with Uber and Airbnb, the sharing economy continues to break boundaries and drastically shape different industries in ways regulators and policy makers never could have imagined. Such disruption has forced regulators around the world to conceptualize ways to integrate consumer protection regulations into the sharing economy. However, as noted by Koopman et al., "the key contribution of the sharing economy is that it has overcome market imperfections without recourse to traditional forms of regulation."


QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER: Should industries participating within the sharing economy be held to the same regulatory standards as their traditional counterparts (i.e. Should Uber and its drivers be regulated the same as the Taxi company and subsequently its drivers in your city?) With a fundamental market change in how consumers wish to conduct business (i.e. shift to peer-to-peer services) can these traditional regulations really apply? Would such regulations improve the general well-being of our communities?

Everything You Need to Know About Winning Scholarships-Obtaining a college education is one of the biggest goals in many young adults’ lives. Earning a degree opens up tons of job prospects and other opportunities that would never be possible with just a high school diploma.

They also say college can be a pretty good time. From meeting new people to experiencing things for the first (and often only) time – college is a once in a lifetime experience.

Though getting a college degree is one of the best things people can do for themselves, it doesn’t come without a price. In fact, for the 2016-2017 school year, the average student will graduate with $16,929 in student loan debt. Depending on your school and financial situation this number could be a little high or very low.


So how do millions of students pay for their higher education each year?  Well, the answer isn’t so simple.  There are a variety of ways to pay for college and many tactics and strategies to save as much money as possible when doing so.  This guide will go into these different ways to pay for college – including savings accounts, financial aid, scholarships & grants, and student loans. We will also explain, in detail, the best approaches to take when dealing with these different methods of paying for college.
