Peer to Peer

After peer to peer lending this Economist leader points out the next big thing could be sharing.

You might think this is no different from running a bed-and-breakfast, owning a timeshare or participating in a car pool. But technology has reduced transaction costs, making sharing assets cheaper and easier than ever—and therefore possible on a much larger scale.

Share nicely now

Now isn’t that just what I was saying.. for quite some time..
