The sharing economy is a fast-growing and economically important sector. However, measuring these assertions is hard and remains a key evidence gap that is hampering the sector from gaining the recognition it deserves. The CBI will fill this evidence gap by measuring the sharing economy’s economic contribution. In our session, we will outline our novel research approach and share emerging findings.
