Preventing concentration of resources in limited areas and to make total global resources equally available to all. The effect will be to break open profit-motive toward a proportionate dynamic.
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: assets exchange to make available resources to all men through interchanges of skills and wealth in local/global communities; cooperative ownership to cause a shift in the profit motive image so that property owners see themselves as stewards of the world's resources; control agency to supervise the economic flow through regulatory networks placed around the globe; just taxation to make the internal revenue burden more equitable, to support government activities at all levels of society; and creation and exchange of contextual stories about the need of re-directed resource flow. An example is the release of centralized oil industry control thus allowing flow of capital directly to employees in the country.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a collaboration between UIA and Mankind 2000, started in 1972. It is the result of an ambitious effort to collect and present information on the problems with which humanity is confronted, as well as the challenges such problems pose to concept formation, values and development strategies. Problems included are those identified in international periodicals but especially in the documents of some 60,000 international non-profit organizations, profiled in the Yearbook of International Organizations.
The Encyclopedia includes problems which such groups choose to perceive and act upon, whether or not their existence is denied by others claiming greater expertise. Indeed such claims and counter-claims figure in many of the problem descriptions in order to reflect the often paralyzing dynamics of international debate. In the light of the interdependence demonstrated among world problems in every sector, emphasis is placed on the need for approaches which are sufficiently complex to encompass the factions, conflicts and rival worldviews that undermine collective initiative towards a promising future.
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.
