International Civilitics Institute
Grounded in an essay by Roy Guisinger, published in 2005, the International Civilitics Institute (ICI) was established to advocate for practical implementations of civilitic (i.e. gift economic) social systems of provisioning that can be scaled to meet the needs of the modern world. Because of its important role in the past, the focus of mainstream economics has been almost exclusively on exchange economics while the idea of gifting has been all but overlooked, considered irrelevant or unimportant.
