(Planetary) '..spending on defence..' Example (Brainstorm)

<blockquote>(Peace) '..weapons development .. a peaceful or nonweapons application..'</blockquote>

*** (Planetary) '..spending on defence..'

<blockquote>Gates said that non-US allies' $300bn annual defence budget could buy significant capabilities if spent strategically, but ended up funding less than the sum of its parts. [1]

"Too many allies have been unwilling to fundamentally change how they set priorities and allocate resources."

- Robert Gates</blockquote>

'..the agreed-upon 2 per cent of gross domestic product spending on defence..' [2]

Two per cent of gross domestic product is too much.

Just like Japan, 1 percent of GDP.

That would be:
<blockquote>US: $14,660,000,000,000 1% = $146,600,000,000

EU including Turkey $15,761,000,000,000 1% = $157,610,000,000

Japan: $4,310,000,000,000 1% = $43,100,000,000

Russia: $2,223,000,000,000 1% = $22,230,000,000

China: $10,090,000,000,000 1% = $100,900,000,000

Total: (US, EU) $304,210,000,000

Total: (US, EU, Japan, Russia, China) $470,440,000,000

<blockquote>25% Pension (savings)
25% R&D (investment)
25% Health care (like recuperation, planetary emergencies (quakes (2004: 9.4 Richter scale, 2011: 9.0 Richter scale), tornadoes, tsunami, meltdowns etc.)
25% Defence (consumption)</blockquote>

*** Examples ($)

<blockquote>US Defence Example: 36.65 billion, budget: 35.0 billion. Margin of error: 650 million
<blockquote> - US Space (Air, two F-22 (180 maximum) per annum: 0.5 billion, F-35 (500 maximum) 10 per annum: 2,0 billion) Personnel (max of 20,000) per annum: 2 billion (50% concerns wages) - (Space: 2 billion per annum (25% concerns wages))

- US Ocean (maximum costs of four carriers [3] per annum: 8.5 billion. Maximum costs submarines per annum: 10 billion)

- US Land (rapid disposel of nuclear weapons ten year period: cost 8 billion per annum. Personnel (max of 20,000) per annum: 2 billion (50% concerns wages))

Maximum Personnel US Defence: 91,000 (US Space: 25,000 - US Ocean: 26,000 - US Land: 40,000)</blockquote>

EU Defence Example: 39.40 billion, budget: 38.50 billion. Margin of error: 900 million
<blockquote>- EU Space 8,5 billion

- EU Ocean 15 billion

- EU Land (rapid disposel of nuclear weapons ten year period: cost 8 billion per annum)

Maximum Personnel EU Defence: 95,000 (EU Space: 35,000 - EU Ocean: 20,000 - EU Land: 40,000)

NATO: 40,000 (of the 7,00 billion, concerns 4 billion in wages. Concerns 3,0 billion investment per annum in planetary defence (Japan, EU, India, US, Russia, China) which should begin with a basic energy-data infrastructure [5])</blockquote>

Max Personnel: 226,000 (EU + US + NATO)

Reminder; The government can't tax more than 1.5%. The states can't tax more than 1.5%. Municipality can't tax more than 2%. Total tax burden can't exceed 5.5%. There can't be any taxations of incomes, savings and investments. The only tax will be levied on consumption; electrical consumption. The maximum tax should be 5.5%:

Electrical Bill and Taxation percentages

1.5% towards (federal) government
1.5% towards states
2,0% Municipality
0.5% Global
<blockquote>Global Example ($)

0,5 % of 75 trillion Global GDP is 375 billion (expecting that 50% will be collected.)
<blockquote>Global Defence: Maximum $75 billion
UN: 4 billion (Utilise Global defence forces of Japan, EU, India, US, Russia and China - Utilise the basic Desertic-Global-Grid concept concerning energy and communication.)

Protecting Private Property: 37,5 billion.
It concerns:

- Savings: 9,375 billion

- Protecting private property: 28,125 billion (investment) per annum which is based on a complete global banking reform (ending the fractional reserve system). Half of the annuals savings should be stored. The other half could be lend out, receiving some interest. The more savings available will probably result in a lower interest rate. This could be self-supporting on savings and receiving interest payments over the sum of money which had been lended out. There by removing the need to tax. Expect, with a descent amount of savings (supply) a 2% interest rate. The interest rate will rise when the stored (the saved money) declines. Interest rates will fall when the amount of savings (supply) has increased.

Personnel: 20.000 10 billion (500.000 per person per annum (of with 25% should be saved to have a cushion of support in the latter stage of human life)

Personnel: 40.000 8 billion (200,000 per person per annum (of with 25% should be saved to have a cushion of support in the latter stage of human life)

Other expanses 10 billion (paper, ink, computing etc.)

Margin of error: 125 million.

- Cleaning up of armament (unexploded boms, mines etc.) and pollution (like plastics etc.): 62.5 billion per annum.

It must be noted that it will take at least five generations for cleaning up the mess which is visible (see Belgium, relates to: World War One.)

To come to terms with the past innerly is another story. This will be a great challange in the 21st century.

We need this century to recuperate as a species.

Therefore, to learn the Art of Being Human: Planetary Adaptive Individual Learning platform: a minimum of 75 billion per annum</blockquote></blockquote></blockquote>

A planetary banking reform [4] Removing the fractional-reserve-system is necessary to manage savings, lending etc. in a prudent accounting fashion.



The last serious attempt to establish a bank based on the general legal principles governing the monetary irregular deposit and to set up an efficient system of government control to adequately define and defend depositors’ property rights took place with the creation of the Municipal Bank of Amsterdam in 1609. It was founded after a period of great monetary chaos and fraudulent (fractional-reserve) private banking. Intended to put an end to this state of affairs and restore order to financial relations, the Bank of Amsterdam began operating on January 31, 1609 and was called the Bank of Exchange. The hallmark of the Bank of Amsterdam was its commitment, from the time of its creation, to the universal legal principles governing the monetary irregular deposit. More specifically, it was founded upon the principle that the obligation of the depository bank in the monetary irregular-deposit contract consists of maintaining the constant availability of the tantundem in favor of the depositor; that is, maintaining at all times a 100-percent reserve ratio with respect to “demand” deposits. This measure was intended to ensure legitimate banking and prevent the abuses and bank failures which had historically occurred in all countries where the state had not only not bothered to prohibit and declare illegal the misappropriation of money on demand deposit in banks, but on the contrary, had usually ended up granting bankers all sorts of privileges and licenses to allow their fraudulent operations, in exchange for the opportunity to take fiscal advantage of them.

Taxes must be phased out around the middle of the 22th century. The Tax is a burden to clean up the mess made in the 20th century which 'spilled over' in the 21th century.

Nuclear energy must be phased out around the middle of the 21th century.

[3] Of the carriers, only four (the most modern versions) shall remain operational, the rest: mothball (spare parts.) Using the nuclear engine(s) for generating electricity (for cities, R&D projects [4] etc.) could be an option.

<blockquote>US: 4
Russia: 1 (Keep it Simple)
China: 1</blockquote>
