Using the information you learned in your reading this week, think about how you would define a mezzo level and a macro level in the type of economy that Rachel Botsman presents.
For example, are there mezzo systems she has done away with due to the globalization of exchange?
Does her system consider everything to be a micro system since we access it individually and don’t need to go through other systems to access the resources we need / want?

An example of a micro system she addresses;
An example of a mezzo system she addresses;
