 Join author Tom Slee, on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, 7:00 - 8:30 pm at Toronto Reference Library, Beeton Hall,  as he explores the personal and societal consequences of the so-called sharing economy.

What's yours is mine

 
Drawing on his original empirical research,  in his book, Slee shows that the friendly language of sharing, trust and community often masks a darker reality.

This largely unregulated sector creates unfair competition with traditional industries by avoiding the usual taxes, licensing fees, personnel training costs, insurance fees and other regulatory headaches.

Here is a recent analysis from CBC on Canada's sharing economy, along with an article on the topic from the Globe and Mail.
