Beschreibung:
During the last years, a broad spectrum of sharing phenomena has emerged that challenge established business practices: Car-sharing services like DriveNow increasingly challenge traditional notions of car-ownership; hospitality networks like Airbnb turn into serious competitors to hotels; and peer-to-peer lending platforms like auxmoney offer alternatives to established credit practices. Initially, the sharing economy has mostly been heralded as a solution to manifold problems: It not only strengthens communities by enhancing alternative modes of transaction, but also curbs the depletion of scarce goods and reduces pollution. More recently, however, the sharing economy has attracted increasing criticism for undermining labor regulations, endangering public services and escalating housing shortages, amongst others. By exploring the variety of sharing phenomena, this course will critically explore the ambivalences of the emerging economy.

Topics include:
Traditional sharing practices and the 'tragedy of commons'
Property: The age of access and peer-production
Production: Platforms and network effects
Consumption: The mesh and collaborative consumption
Collaboration: Wiki-nomics and mass collaboration
Practices I: Flat sharing and the sociality of intimate encounters
Practices II: Car sharing and the struggle for legitimacy
Practices III: Labor sharing and the economics of desperation
