Abstract

This case will present Airbnb’s operation in New York City (NYC). NYC is Airbnb’s largest U.S. market, but it has proven to be a difficult business environment, due to the legal framework, which strictly curtails short-term rental activity there. Students will identify how, going forward, Airbnb should work with the authorities to change the law, allowing expansion of the operation in NYC. Though this case focuses on NYC, it is relevant for Asia-based students, due to Airbnb’s plans to enlarge its operation there. This case can be used in a law and public policy class for either high level undergraduate or post-bachelors law students.
