The best understanding of a GIFT ECONOMY is to read Hyde's book.
(I also read his TRICKSTER book and have done several plays based upon  
Trickster stories from around the world)

There are many historical examples from around the world.
But here in the USA (where I live) there are mini gift economies that  
we take for granted.
Blood Banks
Organ Donation

Barter can be a form of the Gift Economy
The Los Angeles Skills Pool
Free Stores
Free Clinics
Food Banks
