  These chits from the U.N. may only be utilized for social and economic development, six specific self-sufficiency goals: 1) food production, 2) housing, 3) health care, 4) economic means, 5) civilian security, and 6) education and training to support items 1-5. All chits must be used for peacetime goods and services.

  The U.N. will not grant chits to nations where war is likely or where violations of rights: gender, religious, human, or ethnic, are active or likely.  Repressive and military governments and martial law governments will not qualify for participation in this program, nor will any nation, regardless of its size, which is not fully participating and cooperating in the worldwide elimination of: armaments of war, nuclear weapons, terrorism, and illicit drugs.  

We emphasize that chits will only go to democracies or nations evolving toward democracy because historical evidence indicates that true democracies do not wage war against each other; true democracies do not even prepare for war with one another.(1)  

The development proposals submitted to the U.N. by developing nations are carefully evaluated, in terms of the proposed societal, cultural, economic, and environmental impact, and protection against abuse and corruption.  Is the nation verifiably moving toward true but self-defined and equitable nondiscriminatory constitutional democracy?  Does the proposal truly represent the desires of a great majority of the people?  Will minority rights be protected? What proof, what evidence, what tests support the proposal?  The U.N. may wish to reject certain proposals or return the proposals for corrective improvement.

 When a proposal is accepted and to be funded, the U.N. awards the amount in "Developed World credit chits" for peacetime goods and services.  The chits must make their way back to their origin nation within two years of issue, and may pass through several nations; all must be on the approved list of democratic nations which abide by the U.N. Charter and all Covenants.

  Example: Tanzania, satisfying the requirement of an adequate democracy, wishes to further expand its agriculture and tourism by improved water supplies, farm machinery, construction of tourist villages on the Mwambani Bay coast and near Ruvu Bay, and small hospital clinics in some remote areas. It has found that all the materials and consultants for this development can be obtained at a good price from India, Taiwan, and Finland. Tanzania exchanges its credit chits for those goods and services from those nations. It uses chits originally from Finland, but India and Taiwan have chosen chits which originated in the U.S. and Canada. So far no money has gone anywhere. The Finnish industries that supplied the goods and services take the chits they received and exchange them in the Finnish Government treasury for cash, to pay their workers and replenish their supply of raw materials. No money left Finland. India and Taiwan exchange their chits with industries in the U.S. and Canada who in turn exchange the chits at their government treasuries to pay their workers and continue their industry's growth. (India ordered 25 Cray computers. Taiwan bought very sophisticated medical equipment. Some chits were to go to Israel but it has not yet met the specified conditions for participation; they hope to soon.) (One of the next projects: India and Bangladesh will cooperatively work on flood control projects to control the Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Megha rivers, supplying adequate water for the fertile delta but also channeling excess water into some of the arid regions of India.) Everyone is working. No money has left any nation. 

Developing nations which abide by the U.N. Charter and all Covenants, and which receive credit chits, can expect constant on-site verification and audit by U.N. inspectors, comptrollers, and visitors who will have the responsibility to see that the credit chits are used exactly as originally proposed.
