Establishing and maintaining global economic models. The effect is that by awakening a common economic consciousness in all societies at the same time, a global political consensus is achieved.
An integral part of localizing cooperative participation and enabling each individual to have an equal opportunity for effective participation in the global economic process.
Tactics include: international money to expedite economic cooperatives via a standardized world monetary system; equitable credit to assure that all cooperatives have adequate credits available to participate as cooperative partners and to set a standardized basis of credit exchange; common market to undergird corporate buying and selling structures and marketing data exchange among cooperatives; trade relations to use international regulation to hold specific national needs in helpful tension by an underlying legal structure for interaction by economic cooperatives; and equitable taxation to require all nations to have tax structures in balanced relationships so that cooperatives can operate cross-nationally, unhindered by great variation in local tax levies. An example is global currency which would immediately inform Western man about how much the salary scales in poor countries differ from those in the West.
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.
