Facilitating equitable distribution
Description: Determining priorities for distribution of goods according to comprehensive needs. The effect is to control local equitable distribution.
Context: An integral part of balancing utilization of production through control and regulation of allocation and development and information on available resources and distribution, so there is local accountability for worldwide needs.
Implementation: Tactics include: Access control to insure that all goods and resources are made available to everyone through guaranteed subsidies and quota regulation; local distribution to provide a coordination centre on a local level which is responsive to the needs and aware of the resources of that particular community; investment incentives to balance distribution by providing incentives to industry to make investments in developing areas; shared investments to limit unnecessary expenditure on the part of anyone (person or company) by providing plans for common sharing of resources such as buildings, land or goods; and surplus utilization to allow all surpluses in materials, funds, or personnel, to be used, recycled or distributed as needed. An example is the World Clothing Industry sending blankets to the North Pole rather than to the African jungle, as happened in the past.
