Destabilized Property: Property Law in the Sharing Economy


Add your own review!

Overview

The sharing economy challenges contemporary property law. Does the rise of access render our conception of property obsolete? What are the normative and theoretical implications of choosing casual short-term use of property over stable use? What are the relational and social complications of blurring the line between personal and commercial use of property? The book develops a novel conceptualization of property in the age of the sharing economy. It argues that the sharing economy pushes for a mobile and flexible vision of engaging with possessions and, as a result, with other people. Property's role as a source of permanence and a facilitator of stable, long-term relationships is gradually decreasing in importance. The book offers a broad theoretical and normative framework for understanding the changing landscape of property, provides an institutional analysis of the phenomenon, discusses the social, communal, and relational implications of these changes, and offers guidelines for law reform.

Reviews

'Shelly Kreiczer-Levy's Destabilized Property: Property Law in the Sharing Economy is a major work on a timely subject. This is a sophisticated book, combining nuanced, conceptual and normative analyses with pragmatic suggestions for law reform. This book is a must read for anyone interested in the sharing economy or in property theory.' Hanoch Dagan, Stewart and Judy Colton Professor of Legal Theory and Innovation, Tel-Aviv University 'Of all writers about the rise of the sharing economy, Shelly Kreiczer-Levy is recognized internationally as the most keen observer and the leading theorist in the field. Just as the internet forced us to rethink information and access, the sharing economy forces us to rethink what property means and its role in human lives. The sharing economy shakes the very foundations of the idea of property as a small, exclusive, privatized space, and with this challenge comes both great promise and intense social conflict. This book is brilliant and must be read by anyone who wants to understand this movement. It is the classic in the field.' Laura S. Underkuffler, Cornell University, New York 'The age-old institution of private property keeps changing, and the sharing economy poses unique challenges to ensure the right mix of fairness and flexibility. We could have no better guide than Shelly Kreiczer-Levy to the ways that property law must adjust to this new environment.' Joseph William Singer, Bussey Professor of Law, Harvard University, Massachusetts
