The English expression of the week - Collaborative Consumption

Le présent billet a été rédigé par Jonathan Goldberg, que je remercie. Une traduction en français sera publiée prochainement sur ce blog.

“Collaborative consumption” is used to describe the trend away from 'hyper-consumption' to economic and cultural models of sharing, bartering, trading or renting that have been enabled by advances in social media and peer-to-peer online platforms.

The term was first coined by Ray Algar in the article 'Collaborative Consumption' for Leisure Report Journal in April 2007.

One example is Zipcar - a membership-based car-sharing company providing automobile reservations to its members, billable by the hour or day.



Another example is the bike rental system, such as Velib in Paris.
