In a world where everything has a price and everything is for sale, what happens to the priceless? And what would happen were we to bring those things that are truly valuable back into circulation? Pavi Mehta answers those questions as eloquently as she poses them in this stirring explication of "Giftivism," the practice of radically generous acts that transform the world. She demonstrates that the shift from consumption to contribution, from isolation to community is not only possible, it is a driving force in human nature. As Ms. Mehta correctly observes, "What we will do for love will always be far more powerful than what we will do for money."

    Her humble, unassuming presence. The idea that people are more important than anything else in the world. The old "new" values to live by. The feeling of freedom and fulfillment in considering such a way of life. To know that there is such state and such attitude - Universal Love put into practice. And that's how humanity will be back to the Golden Age.

  • Giftivism subverts the foundational idea of market economics: that people tend to act selfishly. Is that a self-fulfilling idea? Consider how we might design for generosity in a world built for greed.
