  • Sharing economies: moving beyond binaries in a digital age
    • Authors: Davies AR; Donald B, Gray M, et al.
      Pages: 209 - 230
      Abstract: AbstractIn periods of turbulence, the tendency to simplify messages and polarise debates is nothing new. In our hyper-mediated world of online technologies, where it seems that even national policy can be forged in the 140 characters of Twitter, it is more important than ever to retain spaces for in-depth debate of emergent phenomena that have disruptive and transformative potential. In this article, we follow this logic and argue that to fully understand the diverse range of practices and potential consequences of activities uncomfortably corralled under the ambiguous term ‘the sharing economy’ requires not a simplification of arguments, but an opening out of horizons to explore the many ways in which these phenomena have emerged and are evolving. It is argued that this will require attention to multiple terrains, from diverse intellectual traditions across many disciplines to the thus far largely reactive responses of government and regulation, and from the world of techno-innovation start-ups to the optics of media (including social media) reporting on what it means to ‘share’ in the 21st century. Building on this, we make the case for viewing ‘the sharing economy’ as a matrix of diverse economies with clear links to past practices. We propose that to build a grammar for understanding these diverse sharing economies requires further attention to: (1) The etymology of sharing and sharing economies; (2) The differentiated geographies to which sharing economies contribute; (3) What it means to labour, work and be employed in sharing economies; (4) The role of the state and others in governing, regulating and shaping the organisation and practice of sharing economies; and (5) the impacts of sharing economies. In conclusion, we suggest that while media interest may fade as their presence in everyday lives becomes less novel, understanding sharing economies remains an urgent activity if we are to ensure that the new ways of living and labouring, to which sharing economies are contributing, work to promote sustainable and inclusive development in this world that ultimately we all share.

  • The sharing economy as the commons of the 21st century
    • Authors: Bradley K; Pargman D.
      Pages: 231 - 247
      Abstract: AbstractThis article aims to make a contribution to the debate on how contemporary collaborative commons, as part of the wider sharing economy, can be understood and supported. Three cases of contemporary commons are analysed: a DIY bike repair studio, a pop-up home office concept and Wikipedia. The article shows how the design principles developed for governing natural resource commons are only partly applicable to these contemporary commons. It also illustrates the differences in these types of commons in terms of the nature of the resource being shared, scarcity, barriers to entry and how rules are formulated and upheld.

  • Sharing without caring
    • Authors: Belk R.
      Pages: 249 - 261
      Abstract: AbstractI examine sharing in the context of gated communities. Sharing among family, friends and neighbours is the oldest form of mutual distribution and involves inclusionary “sharing in”, which tends to build caring interpersonal ties and a sense of community. Public goods sharing involves more exclusionary “sharing out”, and creates only weak ties and a limited sense of community or caring. The same is true of the so-called “sharing economy”. Gated communities lie between these extremes—not fully private nor public. Paradoxically, since they are founded to share amenities with neighbours, such communities are actually exclusionary and uncaring.

  • Does the sharing economy increase inequality within the eighty
           percent': findings from a qualitative study of platform providers
    • Authors: Schor JB.
      Pages: 263 - 279
      Abstract: AbstractThe sharing economy has generated controversy for its effects on labour conditions, wages and the distributions of income and wealth. In this article, we present evidence for a previously unrecognized effect: increased income inequality among the bottom 80% of the distribution. On the basis of interviews with US providers on three for-profit platforms (Airbnb, RelayRides and TaskRabbit), we find that providers are highly educated and many have well-paying full-time jobs. They use the platforms to augment their incomes. Furthermore, many are engaging in manual labour, including cleaning, moving and other tasks that are traditionally done by workers with low educational attainment, suggesting a crowding-out effect.

  • Sharing economy workers: selling, not sharing
    • Authors: Ravenelle AJ.
      Pages: 281 - 295
      Abstract: AbstractThe sharing or “gig” economy claims to bring the romance of entrepreneurialism to the masses. Through peer-to-peer technology, workers can monetise their homes, resources, time and skills to make additional money. What is marketed as an empowering business opportunity is laden with difficulties and contradictions. Sudden changes to platform design, service offerings and algorithms leave workers feeling vulnerable, not independent. Instead of embracing sharing economy rhetoric, most workers describe themselves as simply seeking money. This article sheds light on the diversity of the gig economy and questions sharing economy company claims that they are contributing to the growth of entrepreneurship.

  • Sharing as a postwork style: digital work and the co-working office
    • Authors: Richardson L.
      Pages: 297 - 310
      Abstract: AbstractEvocations of the ‘sharing economy’ claim disruptions through digital technology. Style is put forward to focus on subtle changes to the form and content of work through digital sharing. Digital sharing is a postwork style with ambiguous implications for worker identity and expression. Digital technologies share work through distributing the workplace beyond a fixed location and by enrolling individuals as workers through processes of communication circulation. These styles of sharing challenge fixed spaces and times of work with utopian and dystopian postwork possibilities. This argument is supported through practices of shared digital work constituting co-working offices in Manchester, Cambridge and London.

  • Sharing: post-scarcity beyond capitalism'
    • Authors: David M.
      Pages: 311 - 325
      Abstract: AbstractRegarding efficiency, efficacy and incentive, free-sharing online (of recordings, live broadcasts, software and published works) outperforms market and property systems by reducing costs of production and distribution, increasing quality and access and better promoting creativity. Free-sharing online emerged within “global network capitalism” and non-capitalist networks. Free-sharing of purely informational content online challenges capitalism by eliminating scarcity. However, post-scarcity is limited by constraints on time and the capacity to filter digital plenitude. These limits create scope for alternative business models. Free-sharing online tempers capitalism’s “tragedy of the anticommons”. However, to date, post-scarcity remains incomplete.

  • ‘People as businesses’: Airbnb and urban
           micro-entrepreneurialism in New York City
    • Authors: Stabrowski F.
      Pages: 327 - 347
      Abstract: AbstractDrawing upon Henri Lefebvre’s notion of the production of space and Michael Callon’s work on performativity in economics, this article examines the material and discursive practices through which the internet ‘home-sharing’ platform Airbnb has produced new social relations of domestic property. Through a critical examination of the discourses and practices of Airbnb in the popular media, courts of law and public hearings, I argue that internet-based platforms such as Airbnb represent a fundamental reworking of social relations of property based on radically new socio-material assemblages. These assemblages—which have served to further commoditise housing by constructing a new market in short-term rentals—have entailed the disruption of not just the hospitality sector, but of the socio-spatial relations of urban housing. As emerging spaces of domestic entrepreneurialism, short-term rentals have generated their own forms of localised opposition. With the spread of Airbnb transforming the lived spaces of housing across New York City, a discursive struggle has ensued over the meanings of this new form of domestic property. In the popular press, courts of law and the chambers and steps of city halls, the stakes have been nothing less than the means and ends of urban governance itself.

  • The sharing economy as community marketplace' Trust, reciprocity and
           belonging in peer-to-peer accommodation platforms
    • Authors: Celata F; Hendrickson C, Sanna V.
      Pages: 349 - 363
      Abstract: AbstractWhat is the role sociality and belonging play within the particular exchange model that the sharing economy embodies' This article presents a theoretical review and a comparative analysis of the main sharing platforms in the accommodation domain in order to outline a conceptual framework on the relations between trust, reciprocity and belonging in the sharing economy. We argue that mobilising a sense of community is not only instrumental to promising a more intense consumption experience; it is crucial to eliciting users’ active participation in the self-regulation of peer-to-peer exchanges and for dealing with relevant trust issues, especially when sharing implies co-presence and/or non-monetary compensation. The drivers and potential outcomes of the decline in social depth of sharing practices are discussed.

  • Looking at the ‘sharing’ economies concept through the prism
           of informality
    • Authors: Kovács B; Morris J, Polese A, et al.
      Pages: 365 - 378
      Abstract: AbstractHow do the ‘sharing economies’ relate to the long history of informal economic practices as understood in the social sciences' This article examines conceptions of the sharing economy in terms of its relation to scholarship on informality. By using two case studies of informal economic practices that originated in socialist-era societies and continue to the present day in modified forms, we critique the notion that sharing economies are significantly novel in form or logic, other than technologically. We draw attention to the variety of informal economy practices to discuss how they may be socially embedded or disembedded. The main focus on global technological leveraging of productivity and connectivity in sharing economy practices would suggest that many aspects are akin to disembedded forms of informality. Scholarship needs to address the ongoing disciplinary parallelism on prefixed ‘economies’—in doing so it would provide a better contextual and theoretical understanding of ‘sharing economies’.
