The human and financial resources are voluntarily offered from myriad sources. This is because the worldview and the purposes of the governance system are inspiring and the outcomes of implementing the system are rewarding; and participation is essentially universal. This has been the experience of participants in this system where it has been set in motion. Where necessary for specific purposes unique to the assemblies or to implementation of specific decisions, the provision of resources and finances will be arranged based on standard measures of capacity such as GDP and population. The United World Organization will operate without being at the mercy of or dependent on any particular nation, because contributions will be fair and proportional to each nation’s capacity.
In general, costs are not expected to be high. The worldview and the global governance system are designed with personal fulfillment as an intentional outcome. It is likely that many costs encountered in societies today would diminish as the values of harmonious coexistence begin to transform culture and society. To cite one specific example, a state can drastically reduce the costs of its military budget if its citizens decide they prefer its border defence to be provided by the global governance system rather than by the state. As states discover the fiscal advantages that result from freeing up resources that previously were sunk in militarism, a ripple effect can be expected to spread regionaly and globally, with further reductions in costs a likely outcome.
