In June 1985, the Yale Economics Department sponsored a half-day conference on Martin Weitzman’s striking proposal that sharing would be introduced into compensation arrangements. His suggestions have received wide attention in the popular press and from economists, but the organizers believed that the suggestions were suﬀiciently novel and promising to warrant careful scrutiny from a wide range of points of view. The conference participants therefore examined the “share economy” from the vantage point of labor economics, capital theory, general equilibrium theory, and macroeconomics.
