Central Banks of the G8 countries should set up algorithms to spin off money to aid developing countries.

The rich countries can't afford states to fail. Therefore they have to do something.
Taxing financial transactions could provide funding. Algorithms could be programmed to do the rest. Where there is a will there is a way !
It would be win-win!

    Jun 21 2013: "To expect fortune to descend like pie from the sky has replaced the sense of being able to shape one's own economic society by collective effort." Max Lerner, "I'm Dreaming of a Bright Sweepstake," 1949. Stalin said Communism could be done away with once class structure was abolished and the lowest class eliminated. Your post makes me think of pie from the sky and a world without classes where everyone gets (from the State) according to their needs and gives (to the State) according to their abilities. Is that your vision for universal peace and global harmony? It has a long, consistent history of utter failure to bring about such a result.
