"Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world’s most popular media owner, creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, has no inventory. And Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate. Something interesting is happening."
Tom Goodwin

Local policy and regulation of services and infrastructures struggle to cope with new technologies that change the way people take decisions about basic needs linked to mobility, communication, accommodation, leisure, food, and rental. Thanks to apps for smartphones, the framework for the demand/supply has dramatically changed. The round table will explore the peculiarities of the so-called sharing economy and will stimulate some reflection upon how a sound regulation can  improve competition in the interest of consumers.
