ABSTRACT

Neoliberal development has brought about lots of problems on income distribution, environmental contamination and power concentration, focusing on the efficiency and economic growth by market principle. The purpose of this study is to reveal the value and limitation of sharing economy as the postdevelopment for the substitution of neoliberal development. Sharing economy has attracted a great deal of attention since the economic crisis in 2008. Sharing economy are regarded as valuable one which increases the duration of products, lessens the social consumption, deriving the conservation of resource and the improvement of environmental problems. However, the corporationalization of sharing economy brought about several problems such as labor exploitation, tax imposition, discrimination, and consumer protection. For postdevelopment, sharing-economy companies have to lessen the dependency of market, increase the collaboration and share between provider and consumer, and also pursue the pro-environmental and sustainable social construction.
