The Sharing Economy’s Dirty Laundry

Alex Rosenblat

D&S researcher Alex Rosenblat and Luke Stark’s work in the sharing economy was discussed in Jacobin Magazine.

“For example, Uber has successfully created the impression that their surge-pricing policies are “simply Economics 101,” but researchers Alex Rosenblat and Luke Stark have shown that their algorithms do not simply reflect increased demand, but instead are part of Uber’s active management of the system, presenting a ‘mirage of a marketplace.'”
