Gift Economy Wiki

Gift Economy Wiki | Nouveaux paradigmes | Scoop.it

This wiki is dedicated to Gift Economies and other ways to promote abundance.

 

To those influenced with the zeitgeist of selfishness, the idea of an economy not based on direct exchange, but on mutual giving may seem naïve, even idealistic.

 

In fact, gift economies are alive and well in the institution closest to most people's hearts, the family, and have been the traditional social system of man since time immemorial.

 

As the "greed is good" exchange-based economic system goes into terminal meltdown, alternative paradigms are rapidly emerging.

TEDxBerkeley - Nipun Mehta - Designing For Generosity

Nipun Mehta is the founder of ServiceSpace (formerly Charity Focus), an incubator of projects that works at the intersection of volunteerism, technology and gift-economy. What started as an experiment with four friends in the Silicon Valley has now grown to an global ecosystem of over 350,000 members that has delivered millions of dollars in service for free. Nipun has received many awards, including the Jefferson Award for Public Service, the President's Volunteer Service Award and Wavy Gravy's Humanitarian award. He is routinely invited to share his message of "giftivism" to wide ranging audiences, from inner city youth in Memphis to academics in London to international dignitaries at the United Nations. He serves on the advisory boards of the Seva Foundation, the Dalai Lama Foundation, and Greater Good Science Center.
