Lucas Meijs of RSM is on a study trip in Shanghai, a city in which the shared bike GPS system came up last year. What seemed like a nice way to share bicycles, resulted in a big protest from non-users. According to Meijs, a warning for every social entrepreneur who enters the sharing economy with modern technology. However, it is also a success story for the political side of civil society. It shows that traditional means and forces of resistance also occur in the new sharing economy and that they can indeed be effective.
