Paul Mason’s recent article on Post Capitalism http://www.theguardian.com/books/2015/jul/17/postcapitalism-end-of-capitalism-begun

from Give It Away by David Graeber – “….what anthropologists were discovering were societies where economic life was based on utterly different principles, and most objects moved back and forth as gifts – and almost everything we would call “economic” behavior was based on a pretense of pure generosity and a refusal to calculate exactly who had given what to whom. Such “gift economies” could on occasion become highly competitive, but when they did it was in exactly the opposite way from our own,; Instead of vying to see who could accumulate the most, the winners were the ones who managed to give the most away”
