Rachel Botsman: Who Can You Trust?

TUE, NOV 21, 2017 (00:00)

At a time when confidence in institutions and governments is at an
all-time low, there has been a surge in the growth of shared economy
companies like Airbnb, Uber and Zipcar. Rachel Botsman writes about
and researches how technology is transforming trust and what this
means for life, work and business. In her new book, "Who Can You Trust?", Botsman
investigates these new trends and notes a huge shift in trust away
from institutions towards individuals, in areas as diverse as dating
to banking, from politics to child rearing.
