Infographic: Understanding the Sharing Economy
We’ve learnt it in pre-school and we’ve been doing it ever since – sharing clothes, food, bikes, toys and old rugged musical instruments that we once used to play with, and now no-longer need them. Imagine this idea being extrapolated to a global scale. That idea then evolves into what we call a Sharing Economy or Collaborative Consumption. It has broken barriers and created newer interpretations of how technology can transform business models to enable greater degree of sharing in the human race, then what has been customarily achieved. Named as one of TIME Magazine’s 10 ideas that will change the world (2011 edition), the following Infographic attempts to throw more light on this idea.
We have tried to be as comprehensive as possible, but if you feel that we have left something out, please comment about it. Share this infographic and spread awareness on this idea.
