How do we build a local sharing economy that works for everyone? This report by Solomon Greene and John McGinty (one in a five-part series on cities and inclusion from the Urban Institute), argues that cities would be better served leveraging the sharing economy to create new opportunities for the urban poor, and are well positioned to do so.

The authors propose creating multistakeholder roundtables to map out the local sharing-economy landscape, identifying gaps and barriers to participation, and proposing strategies to make the sharing economy work for everyone.
