Review welcomes asset-sharing society

The government's review of digital marketplaces that allow consumers to share goods and services online has found that around a quarter of all UK adults are already using 'sharing economy' businesses. The review, conducted by Debbie Wosskow, makes a number of recommendations including adding car clubs to public transport networks; creating a sharing 'city' with multiple shared services; training public officials to encourage jobseekers to sell their skills online; and creating car-pooling lanes in areas with high traffic. The review feeds into a debate over the role of technology in promoting growth and employment at a time when workers' salaries are stagnant.
