Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 1 to 500
~ Idea 346 ~ 21 June 1995
The UN should publish a yearly comprehensive, well-structured report on military budgets and armed forces in the world. Comparisons should be made with other main items in the budgets of nations.
For example, very few people in the world, including US citizens, know that even after the cold war US military expenditures in 1995 are equal to the total of all other US government expenditures for transport, education, housing, health, natural resources, international affairs, veterans, outer-space, justice, social services, government in general, salary insurance, economic development, energy, agriculture and trade. There must be something staggeringly wrong with that.
I do not want any young people and grandchildren to complain and say: "Why didn't you write it down?" I did.
