Michael, I want to move where you live.  Where I live, I hear of 
hundreds of thousands of people currently losing their jobs, savings 
and homes, and I find it hard to agree with your contention that we 
are moving towards a Gift Economy.  And I certainly haven't noticed 
material things getting better.  To the contrary, they seem to be 
getting ever more crappy, unusable and toxic.   I wouldn't want them 
even if they _were_ a gift - which they most certainly are not.
