A gift economy was the economy in tribal societies. It differs from communism in that the government does not take from people, but people freely give to others. They are both left wing on the political axis, but a gift economy supports freedoms while communism is authoritarian.

Small communities like communes and volunteer organizations use this system. A difference between communism and gift economy is people do not have to give to every single person equally and can give to those that help the community better, which provides incentive for working unlike communism.
