How to remove poverty from the face of the Earth

The root cause of poverty is not the creation of the concept of money but the blocking of free flow of money by the money hoarders. It is due to the unnatural concentration of wealth in a few pockets in the world that we see widespread poverty. It is also because we have divided the world into several countries and created borders to block the free flow of money, goods, people from one country in the world to another.

It is because the world has been divided into independent blocks called countries that there is a clash of interests among countries. The solution lies in UNIFYING THE INTERESTS OF ALL COUNTRIES. And the only way to do it is to create a borderless world. Let people migrate from one country to another at will. Open all borders. No need for any Passport or Visa. There will be just one Biometric Identity card with GPS (location traceable at all times) which you'll need to carry. Let there be a complete freedom of movement of goods, people & money. Let there be a single government which rules over the whole world. Let there be a uniform tax rate across the globe. Just like water spreads evenly in a utensil, so will people, goods and money. For the initial one or two years there will be an exodus of people from poor countries into the currently rich ones. But in time a balance will be created across the world and I guarantee you that POVERTY WILL BE ELIMINATED FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH. THERE IS ENOUGH MONEY FOR EVERYONE ON THIS PLANET, IF ONLY THE HOARDED MONEY IS GIVEN AN OUTLET. There are unimaginable sums of unaccounted money from many countries lying in the Swiss Banks and other such havens for unaccounted wealth. Just imagine what this enormous amount of money could do for the world, if all this money was released. Countries must be dissolved and borders eliminated to set the human race free. Not only would such absolute freedom be beneficial for the entire human population in monetary terms, it would also bring with it a mingling of cultures and thus peace and brotherhood across the world. Religions, cultures and races will mingle and a new way of life will emerge. The way it was meant to be.


Now before someone tries to lift my idea and patent it for megabucks or publishes an article in his/her own name, let me tell everyone that the copyrights of this idea belong to me and anyone trying to plagiarize would be sued. ;)
