Implanting basic knowledge of economics in every man using the creations of the technological revolution. Its effect is to enable local economic resources to be applied to global needs.
An integral part of recasting productive engagement to affect production which is equitable in terms of global needs and creative employment of human energies.
Tactics include: individual/family discipline to enable families to utilize internal practices and methods which will allow their economic resources to be focused on the external global mission; comprehensive expenditures to enable secular and religious institutions, bureaucracies, and service agencies to refocus their expenditure priorities in response to worldwide human need; popular technology to create instruction and images which will enable manpower across the globe to utilize technology for local use, thus freeing manpower time and energy from outmoded expenditure; practical finances to provide massive training in current economics; and signal policies to context decision-makers in global inter-relatedness and accountability in order to enable local/global covenant. An example is the use of media in underdeveloped countries to implant images and instructions in the individual of himself using machines in his local community to release people from unnecessary human toil.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
