Shareable: The Dark Side of the Sharing Economy: Could Airbnb Accelerate Gentrification?

Shareable: The Dark Side of the Sharing Economy: Could Airbnb Accelerate Gentrification? | Gentrification in Pittsburgh | Scoop.it

It’s good to question an innovation publicly, especially one as disruptive as sharing. Public dialog is a building block for good collective decisions. It’s also useful to understand that no innovation is either all good or bad – there are only tradeoffs. Tradeoffs mean that you gain some benefits, and you lose others. The question is if the benefits outweigh what’s lost. This is not always a cut and dried. Making this calculation is guided, whether consciously or not, by what we value as a society.

Timothée Mariau's curator insight, December 12, 2015 7:50 PM

Dans cet article un habitant de East Liberty à Pittsburgh aux États-Unis explique les évolutions qu'il a connu au fur et à mesure du temps dans son quartier. Il explique grâce à une anecdote que durant sa jeunesse dans les années 1990 le quartier de East Liberty était un quartier pauvre et dangereux du fait de la présence de gangs. Il raconte qu'aujourd'hui le quartier s'est embourgeoisé durant les dernières décennies ( avec l'installation d'un certain nombre de magasins comme Starbucks...), la population a changé car une partie des habitants ont déménagé y compris certains de ses amis. Il est partagé entre les aspects négatifs de cette gentrification dans son quartier ( avec le départ de ses amis d'enfance) et les aspects positifs ( il peut aujourd'hui se déplacer librement sans danger, les commerces restent ouverts assez tard ce qui n'était pas le cas auparavant...). Cela le rend malheureux de voir que les gens qui ont connu cet endroit comme étant leur maison auparavant ne se sentent pas les bienvenus lorsqu'ils reviennent dans le quartier. Mais pour lui cela est compensé par le fait que sa famille et ses amis vivent aujourd'hui en sécurité dans le quartier.
