Regulation, Innovation, and Growth: Why Peer-to-Peer Businesses Should Be Supported

David Stallibrass (Fingleton Associates) and John Fingleton (Fingleton Associates) examine Regulation, Innovation, and Growth: Why Peer-to-Peer Businesses Should Be Supported.

ABSTRACT:

New technology has enabled peer-to-peer (P2P) businesses to create decentralised networks of individual suppliers, shrinking the minimum efficient size of a firm to a part-time individual.

Such businesses challenge regulatory tools designed to govern traditional business models.

Regulators should seek to accommodate the development of P2P businesses since their success is often based on resolving the same market failures that led to the establishment of regulation in the first place.
