A gift economy is an economic system in which goods and services are given freely, rather than traded. In a market economy, one's wealth is increased by "saving"; in contrast, in a gift economy, wealth is decreased by hoarding, for it is the circulation of the gifts within the community that leads to increase -- increase in connections, increase in relationship strength.

Generosity Entrepreneurs are cultural creatives who are deeply committed to the gift-economy. In India, we've piloted this project with six "Lok Mitra", and below are other love-warriors in the US.
