Van Jones on the Sharing Economy [VIDEO]

Has the sharing economy gone mainstream? A couple pieces of news suggest that may be the case. First comes word that as part of the American Jobs Act, the Obama Administration is exploring a SEC exemption for crowdfunding. But crowdfunding isn't the only part of the sharing economy receiving high-profile attention. At SOCAP11 in San Francisco, activist, attorney and former Obama Administration advisor Van Jones spoke about "the shareable economy" as a "platform for disruptive innovation" in his vision of the "American Dream 2.0". The whole talk is worth watching, but if you're short on time, jump to 17:35 in the video to see Jones speak about the sharing economy and collaborative consumption.
