Dear Dr Wolff, Since you have followed the workings of companies like Uber on your show, I was wondering if you were familiar with the business dealings and economic philosophy of AirBnB. I found the below site, AirBnB Watch, this last week. I have long been skeptical of the "gig economy" as a model, so I have always been curious about the realities and community ramifications of AirBnB rentals. Although I’ve tried to learn as much as I can about AirBnB Watch's background and rationale, I’d appreciate the viewpoint of a well-seasoned (particularly Marxist) economist on the subject. Thanks so much for your weekly programs! I listen every week and keep an ear out for when you visit my area and/or places where my friends live. Best regards, Sascha, Boston MA
