Businessweek: Airbnb conquers New York

Such a story could only happen in law-abiding America. New York renter Ken Podziba once found out that one of his tenants is renting an apartment using the Airbnb service. He really did not like it, but he could not break the contract with him. Podziba began to understand and found out that by law it is impossible to rent housing for less than a month, and turned to the local authorities. They said that no fine or punishment for this violation has been established. Then the property owner contacted the Airbnb administration, but she refused to intervene in the conflict. Having installed a video camera at the door, Podziba found out that the tenant receives $ 220-260 per night, giving him only $ 1,400 per month for the apartment. Thus, in four years he could earn half a million dollars. All that the owner managed to do was write a poisonous note in the New York Post. Businessweek talks about how Airbnb is changing the situation in the rental market and what resistance it encounters along the way.

As a rule, she herself opens only mail, a window with an article she is working on, and relevant links. For those who are not accustomed to such asceticism, she suggests holding a "non-investing Thursday" - to refuse on this day from viewing all distracting sites and evaluate their effectiveness.
