Thoughts on the Sharing Economy: An Experimental Economics Perspective

  • While sharing is almost as old as mankind the “Sharing Economy”, intermediated by Internet and mobile technology, is a phenomenon of the 21st century. In fact, driven by the facilitating role of peer-to-peer platforms and Information Systems (IS), its rise is changing the consumption behavior of millions of people around the globe. Research, however, is struggling to keep up with this rapid development.

    Within the scope of this thesis you will shed light on the role of experimental economics for a better understanding of the “Sharing Economy.”

    Requirements: motivation, commitment, experiences with experimental economics are beneficial
