The subscription model is nothing new, newspapers have been using it for hundreds of years. But the model has been expanding to many industries. Today many of us have Netflix, Amazon Prime, works spaces like We Work, use brand name cars like Cadillac, bicycle sharing like Bixi, car sharing like Communoauto. We are moving to a subscription economy with great benefit to the end consumer as to the companies who manage to persuade us to use their services.
From a personal finance point of view, this is great. You don't clutter your house with stuff (think of movies DVDs or audio CD), you get a greater selection of products and you pay less.
