The gift economy

With neoliberalism having failed spectacularly due to its own inherent contradictions, now is the perfect time to start showing people what alternatives would look like...

On this note, I just wanted to share this really inspiring article entitled:

The really really free market: Instituting the gift economy

As this article says, the "really really free market" gives people a concrete example of anarchist economics. During the last Great Depression, people survived through the pooling and sharing of resources and through anarchist-style "mutual aid"... if there is to be a new Great Depression, then we must show again that only mutual aid makes sense.
