"The Sharing Economy"
By Narveen Aryaputri.

The presence of Cyberspace and the consequent mindset of the 21st Century has created an economy that is unprecedented. Knowing what the economic landscape looks like as we understand the bigger picture is vital in learning how to negotiate the new world we live in.

Changes in the banking system, Crowd funding, , the presence of UBER, are some major currents we can see. Uncontrollable plagiarism, unprecedented fraud, and creation of true new art forms redefine the term 'caveat emptor'.

Named the new ' wild west' frontier, are the dangers negotiable with greater ease since the outset of cyberspace?

Narveen will be exploring the new Sharing Economy in her essay on this topic. Copies will be available on hand.

Narveen is a professor in English Literature. She is a professional   artist, and an essayist. She has restored two major historical buildings in our area: the Spencer House, circa 1865, and The Moline Commercial Club, circa 1912.
