The Cambridge Handbook of the Law of the Sharing Economy

I am excited to announce the publication of The Cambridge Handbook of the Law of the Sharing Economy edited by Nestor M. DavidsonFordham Law School, Michèle FinckUniversity of Oxford , John J. InfrancaSuffolk University School of Law. Here is the description of the book from Cambridge Press: 

This Handbook grapples conceptually and practically with what the sharing economy - which includes entities ranging from large for-profit firms like Airbnb, Uber, Lyft, Taskrabbit, and Upwork to smaller, non-profit collaborative initiatives - means for law, and how law, in turn, is shaping critical aspects of the sharing economy. Featuring a diverse set of contributors from many academic disciplines and countries, the book compiles the most important, up-to-date research on the regulation of the sharing economy. The first part surveys the nature of the sharing economy, explores the central challenge of balancing innovation and regulatory concerns, and examines the institutions confronting these regulatory challenges, and the second part turns to a series of specific regulatory domains, including labor and employment law, consumer protection, tax, and civil rights. This groundbreaking work should be read by anyone interested in the dynamic relationship between law and the sharing economy.

The book has a great number of insightful chapters by leading scholars in their fields on questions ranging from competition law to zoning and the geography of platforms and new business models, the law and economics of new digital platforms - my chapter is called Coase and the Sharing Economy - and questions about employment, trust, safety, consumer choice, and democratic decision-making.

I’m writing a dissertation and studying economic business models so, I’d be happy to add this book to my reference list. Also, I’m sure that new digital platforms make life easier and could help to find the product ideas https://answershark.com/writing/business-writing/feasibility-study-topics.html or make a research and adopt new business models
