We all share, but today, millions get paid for it. Is this new trend just a fad or is it radical rethink for how we work?

When we catch a ride with an Uber driver or contract with someone on Upwork, we marvel at the convenience. What we often overlook is the amount of trust it takes to ride with a stranger or to work with someone we may never meet. Yet that level of trust is what is driving the sharing economy, a form of commerce that harkens back to the 11th-century Maghribi traders.

In his book, The Sharing Economy: The End of Employment and the Rise of Crowd-based Capitalism, NYU Stern Professor Arun Sundararajan provides the context and the history for how we got here. He also paints a picture for where we are headed, particularly when it comes to labor and safety policies and regulations. A recognized authority on the sharing economy, he has written for the New York Times, Wired, the Financial Times, and Harvard Business Review.

In this interview, we talk about:

What makes the sharing economy similar to 18th-century commerce
How we are making the shift away from corporate buying to peer purchasing
How the sharing economy is blurring the lines between personal and professional
How the pendulum is swinging back to relationships, connections, and gifts
How the sharing economy speaks to our yearning for making and connection
What the 11th-century Maghribi traders can teach us about trust and commerce
Ways the sharing economy encourages us to do a better job
Whether the sharing economy can reduce inequality
How the sharing economy requires different labor regulations and policies
How the government can partner with platforms to rethink regulations
How labor regulations were designed for an era of full-time workers
Why our economy will increasingly rely on stakeholders other than government
How blockchain tech promises a world where crowd is market maker
Why trust is embedded in this economic shift
How new forms of trust will enable new forms of commerce
What is it about digital cues that help us trust one another?
