May 1, 2011 (SOAPBOX #95) - Cindy Sheehan celebrated the arrival of May by extending a happy welcome to Genevieve Vaughan, driving force behind the perspicacious and innovative website, Gift Economy. Ms. Vaughan is an independent researcher, a strong feminist and a highly original economic thinker. She developed the theory of a gift-based economy - in contrast to today's exchange-based systems. She is the author of For-Giving: A Feminist Criticism of [the] Exchange [economy]. Genevieve has much to say, which has proved tough to get out to the public. Who could imagine having trouble getting an unapproved message out, here in the land of our oft-vaunted freedoms, for which "they" hate us (?)
It's likely you've never heard a discussion like the one between Ms. Vaughan and Cindy!
