Recently at the TNW conference in Amsterdam, Loic Le Meur regaled the audience with a detailed keynote on the sharing economy, its growth, and how, whether or not you want to, you cannot avoid it.

What is driving the sharing economy? Not to spoil the excellent speech, but a few of the key reasons include a sluggish economy and problems involving choice. If you want to get your mind around a key, and rapidly growing sector of not just the technology market, but also the economy as whole, Loic has you covered.

I’ve embedded Loic’s impressive 131 slides below so you can following along on your own. Enjoy!
