ABSTRACT. Employing recent research results (e.g. Davidson and Infranca, 2016) covering the relationship between sharing economy, regulatory arbitrage, and urban governance, and using data from Pew Research Center, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding the debate over the legality of home-sharing services, U.S. users’ views of ride-hailing services, and U.S. individuals who expect these services to play a role in managing the customer experience. Empirical and secondary data are used to support the claim that the numerous well-resourced disputes that sharing economy companies are having with city governments have established the conditions of the sharing economy and have altered the character of local government regulation.

Keywords: sharing economy; regulatory arbitrage; urban governance; city space
