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.
