HIIT at CSCW 2013: The ideal of self-sufficiency puts brakes on sharing economy

Tue, 26.02.2013

 

According to a recent study by HIIT and UC Berkeley researchers, fear of owing a debt of gratitude and a reluctance to ask for help are slowing the success of online services that facilitate joint use, borrowing and exchange of services. People who engage in exchange activities were not as concerned about becoming the target of unfair accusations about being a ‘free rider’.
