You have really good points here. “Sharing economy” is a marketing term for peer-to-peer marketplaces owned by a market-mediator. There is no sharing in the Uber & Airbnb concepts. Using your car or renting your property to provide a service is just service providing. Providing services has long been a monopoly of companies, businesses and service providers. However, with the technological advances, start-ups have recently found a way to engage and employ the remaining unexploited market of peer-to-peer consumption. That’s what the fuzz is all about. “Access economy” is the actual correct term.
