 —  Institute a tax of .5% on transborder electronic currency exchange transactions.
 •  Enforce Global Compact principles for member transnational corporations.
 •  Integrate International Monetary Fund, World Bank, and World Trade
      Organization policies and practices with UN social and environmental treaties.
 — Establish a Sustainable Development Authority, supported by user fees, to 
      regulate the sustainable commercial exploitation of the global commons.
 — Create an International Disaster Relief Agency, paid for by a surcharge
      on property insurance premiums.
 — Replenish a Global Renewable Energy Support Fund with taxes on transnational
      energy companies’ windfall profits from the escalating price of oil.
