NEW WORLD WITHOUT STRANGERS
The new collaborative economy explained by Henry Golding (''Crazy Rich Asians'')
The concept of sharing within communities isn’t something new. In fact, it goes back thousands of years, to a time when people didn’t really have much. Nowadays, this notion has made a comeback but with a twist. Welcome to the age of the "collaborative economy”.
It’s an ecosystem built upon the partaking of human and physical resources. At its heart is a marketplace for the exchange of ideas, experiences, used goods, underutilized spaces and so on. It's a far reaching movement which has impacted human relationships, notions of ownership and, more importantly, our lives in general.
Our host, Henry Golding, embarks on a journey across 3 Asian countries – South Korea, China and Singapore - to discover how the collaborative economy has transformed the way people shop, meet, eat, sleep and even relate to one another.
