Sharing Economics: Exploring State & Municipal Regulation and Privacy in Emerging Local Markets
3 PM EDT
This panel will explore challenges that local governments are facing as the so-called “sharing economy,” with platform firms like Uber and AirBnB leading the way, rapidly disrupts traditional markets and regulatory structures. Expanding on the FTC’s June 2015 workshop, the panel will recap highlights from that event, explore privacy concerns as cities and counties collect and use more data from platform companies like Uber, and discuss the pros and cons of adapting alternative regulatory approaches—like self-regulatory options—as means to best ensure both competition and consumer protection in municipal markets.
