Steven Hill on the Kojo Nnamdi Show: Regulating Airbnb and The Sharing Economy

Kojo Nnamdi Show, WAMU/NPR, October 26, 2015

New America Foundation fellow Steven Hill, who recently authored the book Raw Deal: How the ‘Uber Economy’ and Runaway Capitalism are Screwing American Workers, argues that Airbnb effectively pits local residents against tourists. For example, he saya he’s interviewed tenants who’ve been kicked out of their rental units to be replaced by Airbnb renters. Nnamdi notes that some of their landlords aren’t average homeowners, but entrepreneurs with many properties.
