The sharing economy or the collaborative consumption is an economic model based on a simple principle: optimize the use of a poorly or unused property! Such a property can be shared, traded, bartered, sold or rented. The use prevail the ownership, and is changing the way we consume. This is against the traditional company model where the latter grows thanks to the over-consumption and excessive ownership.
The term “sharing economy” spread its popularity in 2010, in particular with the book “What’s mine is yours” of Rachel Botsman, who became the Queen of the sharing economy.
The rise of this system began with the sharing of houses, and companies like Airbnb or Guestoguest who faced unbelievable success. Furthermore, other trip sharing platforms appeared, such as Blablacar, Djump or Uber. On the same principle of carsharing, other systems between individuals have emerged. In past years, particularly in France and the Netherlands, which are experiencing considerable success.
