A heuristic budget that images in approximation what would occur in the first years of World Union can be presented here. This presumes to include all governments and spending units of the world down to the individual. (For the first time, the individual person is to be regarded universally and formally as an organ of government.) It is not the particular budget of the World Government. It is the whole world income and spending pattern.
An Average Annual All-World Accounting
of the first decade of the new millennium, 2000-2010, for all individuals, groups and governments of a democratic capitalist-socialist world order in billions of 1995 dollars.
|Environment and Infra-structure gains||2,000|
|Loans against deficits||800|
|All other (fees, gifts, capital increments)||1,000|
|Personal Income (labor)||8,000|
|Production materials cost||1,000|
|Income, capital investment||2,000|
|Other (disasters, etc.)||500|
The World Union Government's budget itself should consist largely of monetary transfers for the various functions among countries, associations, metropolitan councils, regions, and people (98%) and in expenses of supervising the functions (2%), together amounting to about ten trillions out of the $22.8 trillion total. The balance of $12.8 trillions would be both gathered and spent in the regions, the metropolitan councils, the associational councils, and the nations of the World Union.
