To Air (BnB) is Human: Regulating the Share Economy

This paper will focus on two of the most prominent businesses utilizing the share economy: ride share services such as Uber, and services that facilitate short term vacation rentals such as AirBnB. The discussion of local government regulation of these businesses may also help inform local governments about issues that arise in regulating other share economy businesses such as who can be regulated, the nature of the regulation that can be applied and how to enforce such regulations. This paper will not provide specific policy suggestions as to the form that regulation should take, but will hopefully assist local governments in identifying and focusing on the regulatory considerations that arise when responding to public interest concerns regarding share economy businesses.
