Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this article is to gain a deeper understanding of possible advantages of the sharing economy, incentives for being involved in the sharing economy, the platforms and practices of the sharing economy, and the capacity of the novel sharing practices to assist in initiating a social transition. This study is grounded in the considerable body of scholarship examining the relevance of the sharing economy to both the public and private spheres, the constraints of the reputational processes that sharing platforms supply, reasons for participating in the sharing economy, and the latter’s effects on ecological welfare and social connection. pp. 69–75JEL codes: Q01; Q56
