While we’re talking about hotly debated topics, we might as well throw the sharing economy in there! This panel discussions included three of the world’s leading speakers, authors and thinkers on the sharing economy. April Rinne, Michel Bauwens and Neal Gorenflo discussed a wide range of issues in the context of the emerging sharing economy including, the future of work, the danger of monopolies, the impact on cities and the critical business opportunities. It was a frank and open conversation with plenty of debate.
