How do you feel about paying taxes directly to the United Nations? Of course, we already pay indirect taxes by providing them with 22 percent of the UN regular budget and more than 27 percent of the UN peacekeeping budget. However, there is a plan in the works to:
“impose a global consumer tax on such things as Internet activity or everyday financial transactions like paying bills online.” As [George] Russell writes:
Such a scheme could raise “tens of billions of dollars” on behalf of the United Nations’ public health arm from a broad base of consumers, which would then be used to transfer drug-making research, development and manufacturing capabilities, among other things, to the developing world.
The multibillion-dollar “indirect consumer tax” is only one of a “suite of proposals” for financing the rapid transformation of the global medical industry that will go before WHO’s 34-member supervisory Executive Board at its biannual meeting in Geneva.”
