Editorial Reviews

Review

Peers Inc is perfectly timed and convincingly argued.”—Financial Times

“Chase gives historical insight into her cofounding of ZipCar and how the flexibility and ingenuity of the public allows for new business models to be developed…An engaging and quick read on collaboration and the new capitalism.”—Library Journal

"A provocative discussion of how public investment and private entrepreneurship can combine to shape future advantages from existing used and unused capacities."—Kirkus Reviews

"A remarkably comprehensive, and extremely clear, guide to the world's new logic. I'm less interested in how these peer networks make money than in how they make change; as Robin Chase points out, if we're going to fight climate change we're going to need just about everyone engaged. Here's a recipe!"—Bill McKibben, founder 350.org

“Clear-eyed, practical and radical insight from a visionary who has already built part of our future. This is just the beginning.” —Seth Godin, author of It's Your Turn

Peers Inc will change our ideas about how the economy is shaped and will transform how we work, build businesses and crack pressing societal problems.” — Chris Anderson, author of The Long Tail
