Abstract
With the rapid development of the Internet, people have become participants and providers of personal goods exchanging and sharing. The development of sharing economy is of great importance to China, which is characterized by its relatively scarce per capita resources, abundant human resources and serious mismatch of resources. It also provides a good opportunity of “corner overtaking” for China's economy. This paper introduces the Transaction Cost Theory, the Collaborative Consumption Theory and new perspectives of sharing economy. After discussing the theoretical basis, research status and practices in China and other countries regarding the concepts of sharing economy, it points out the driving factors of the explosive growth of the sharing economy in light of China’s national conditions and elaborates the challenges of the new-model sharing economy to China’s social governance from four aspects. At the end of this paper, specific proposals on governing sharing economy are made, including the formulation of law and regulation, joint supervision with platforms, then enhancement of personal credit rating, social supervision and improvement of social security system.
