"The news is full of their names, supposedly the vanguard of a rethinking of capitalism. Lyft, Airbnb, Taskrabbit, Uber, and many more companies have a mandate of disruption and upending the "old order"--And they've succeeded in effecting the "biggest change in the American workforce in over a century," according to former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich. But this new wave of technology companies is funded and steered by very old-school venture capitalists. And in What's Yours Is Mine, technologist Tom Slee argues the so-called sharing economy damages development, extends harsh free-market practices into previously protected areas of our lives, and presents the opportunity for a few people to make fortunes by damaging communities and pushing vulnerable individuals to take on unsustainable risk. Drawing on original empirical research, Slee shows that the friendly language of sharing, trust, and community masks a darker reality."-- c Provided by publisher.… (mais)

Very eloquently argues a lot of vague thoughts I'd had about the 'Sharing Economy' - basically that it's a backdoor method of deregulation on a massive scale. Reading this and Rise of the Robots back to back was probably not the best idea in terms of keeping positivity high for the future of work. ( )

I thought I didn’t need to read What’s Yours is Mine, Against the Sharing Economy. I felt instinctively that AirBnB and Uber were a bad idea, and I’ve never used them. But lots of people do – and it turns out that I have unwittingly been a participant contributing content to a sharing business (i.e. Goodreads). These disruptive business models are now global, and spawning offspring of all kinds. Tom Slee tackles the phenomenon and exposes it for what it is.
In the preface, which updates developments since the book was first published in the US, Slee reiterates the attractive promises of the Sharing Economy (which we all know so I won’t repeat them) and then shows how the idealistic communitarian and co-operative vision has been hijacked.

Unfortunately, something different and altogether darker is happening: the Sharing Economy is extending a harsh and deregulated free market into previously protected areas of our lives. The leading companies are now corporate juggernauts themselves, and are taking a more and more intrusive role in the exchanges they support to make their money and to maintain their brand. As the Sharing Economy grows, it is reshaping cities without regard to those things that make then liveable. Rather than bringing a new openness and personal trust to our interactions, it is bringing a new form of surveillance where service workers must live in fear of being snitched on, and while the company CEOs talk benevolently of their community of users, the reality has a harder edge of centralised control. Sharing Economy marketplaces are generating new and ever-more-entitled forms of consumption. The language of ‘a little extra money’ turns out to be the same as that used about women’s jobs forty years ago, when they were not seen as ‘real’ jobs that demanded a living wage, and so did not need to be treated the same, or paid as much, as men’s jobs. Instead of freeing individuals to take control over their own lives, many Sharing Economy companies are making big money for their investors and executives, and making good jobs for their software engineers and marketers, by removing the protections and assurances won by decades of struggle, by creating riskier and more precarious forms of low-paid work for those who actually work in the Sharing Economy. (p.3)

The chapter about AirBnB is instructive, and it confirms stories that I’m starting to see in the media.
