9:25 am - 10:00 am Deep Dive 1: The Changing World of Work & Entrepreneurs
Platforms are reshaping today's workforce, & have led to the rise of independent contractors,
freelancers, unconventional workers, micro-entrepreneurs & worker cooperatives. What are the
opportunities & challenges created by this new world of work? Will this new workforce grow
the economy or will growth be slowed as we lose corporate economies of scale? How should
society plan for this transition & the potential upheaval of the traditional workforce?

As collaborative, peer-to-peer & sharing platforms move economic activity out of existing
institutions & into new ones, what gaps are created in the social safety net? How will capital
contributions to society that currently rely on corporate & local taxes be funded? Will new
market-based solutions, like those which have emerged for U.S. retirement planning emerge, or
will government need to expand, or will new peer collectives emerge?

As disruptive technologies continue to alter how businesses operate, can the regulatory
infrastructure adapt quickly enough to allow innovation while still achieving their central role in
providing a fair & safe environment for consumers & businesses? If a new balance between the
government & marketplace is needed, what does this look like, & how do we achieve a
transition while also considering the interests of existing players?

12:00 pm - 12:40 pm Conversation: Friction between New York & the Collaborative, Peer &
Sharing Economy
Cities are innately sharing economies. The depth & diversity of New York's markets, coupled
with its density of businesses & people, make the city one of the largest potential global markets
for the new economy. However, striking the right balance between thoughtful policies &
regulations that protect the health & well-being of residents & creating the space for
innovation & growth has been challenging. Participants will build on the issues raised in the first
three deep dives to discuss opportunities & challenges to realizing the full potential of NYC's
deep market, possible paths towards co-existence of the old & the new, & explore what other
cities are doing to become more shareable”.
