“Sharing economy” versus “informal sector”: Jakarta’s motorbike taxi industry in turmoil
AbstractComparing conventional motor bike taxi services in Jakarta (ojek) to their recent online-based competitors (GoJek), this paper contrasts a prime example of the classic “informal sector” with newly emerging forms of the “sharing economy”. It challenges the notion of “informal economy” as an umbrella concept for such two different business models.
