<p> The recent changes in our economic landscape have notably exposed and intensified a phenomenon: an explosion in sharing, bartering, lending, trading, renting, gifting, and swapping. From enormous marketplaces such as eBay and craigslist to emerging sectors such as peer-to-peer lending (Zopa) and car sharing (Zipcar), Collaborative Consumption is disrupting outdated modes of business and reinventing not only what we consume, but how we consume.<p> While ranging enormously in scale and purpose, these companies and organizations are redefining how goods and services are exchanged, valued, and created--in areas asdiverse as finance and travel, agriculture and technology, education and retail. Traveling among global entrepreneurs and pioneers and exploring rising ventures as well as established companies adapting to these opportunities, the authors outline in bold and imaginative ways how Collaborative Consumption may very well change the world.
