France in focus

Is France 'over-sharing?'

This week we're in start-up mode as we take a look at the so called "sharing economy". We look at how the French are increasingly "taken" by the peer-to-peer principle, from crowdfunding to car-sharing. We explain how this experiment in solidarity can actually mean a loss in "takings" for traditional businesses, and why the state wants its share of the peer-to-peer profits.
