The gig economy and the impact it generates in Mexico

Before talking about a gig economy, first we must understand what the term means. According to a study published by Deloitte Insights, it refers to a practice, more and more common, between consumers that provide a service to each other, in a direct manner, without the need of appealing to a company, and where they pay for the consumption or utilization of goods, as opposed to owning them.

  • Nevertheless, in practice, the concept of a gig economy is much broader, for within the process there is a diverse type of relations, that vary according to the necessities of the consumer, such as:
  • The shared consumption based on the use of digital platforms for the altruistic exchange of products or services.
  • The open knowledge whose objective is to disseminate knowledge without legal or administrative barriers.
  • The collaborative production which promotes projects or services that are produced on digital platforms.
  • And, the collaborative finance that puts users in touch in order to satisfy their financing needs, like crowdfunding.
