Opportunities in the Gig Economy

March 31, 2021 @ 12:00 am

Technology companies such as Uber and Lyft have created opportunities for individuals to leverage their cars, and their downtime, to earn money on the side. Airbnb and Vrbo have done the same through short-term rentals. While these are some of the more familiar companies in the so-called gig economy, they are by no means the only ones. What is the future of the gig economy, and how should cities be reacting?

Please join us for the sixth installment of our Spring 2021 Discussion Groups series, “The Modern American City: Past, Present, and Future.” Our Spring Fellow Patrick Tuohey welcomes guests Steve King, Partner at Emergent Research, and Arun Sundararajan, Harold Price Professor of Entrepreneurship and Professor of Technology, Operations and Statistics at New York University’s Stern School of Business.

This program is made possible through the generosity of Newman’s Own Foundation.

Submit your questions to dolequestions@ku.edu for the question-and-answer portion of the program.

This special program will be live-streamed to the institute’s YouTube channel and to its website, www.doleinstitute.org. Due to continuing concerns regarding the novel coronavirus pandemic, the program will only be available online. Follow the Dole Institute on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter for updates regarding this and future programming.
