As Bananaistan said, this should be a question asked in the Q&A thread, which was linked, rather than here. There are several resolutions about free trade, but as far as I know there are none about reconstruction of nations’ economies.

I would like to submit a resolution about public transport

Postby Apabeossie » Sat Nov 02, 2019 6:19 pm

Resolution TItle:Right To Access To Decent Public transportation
Please tell me:
1. Is there a another similar resolution?
2. Is this topic good enough to be a WA resolution?
3. So far I have written
The General Assembly,

Aware that some people in the world cannot have decent access to public transportation,

Noting that public transportation not only is a way of lowering CO2 emissions but also plays a huge role in addressing poverty by giving people decent access to high-paying jobs, better schools, and services,



Is this ok?

This is not the GA Q&A thread. There's a separate stickied thread for Q&A. There's also a separate stickied thread with all the passed resolutions. You can search it with relevant keywords, EG "transport" "public transport" "transportation"

My proposal is to promote the teachings of languages at schools. It would help our future generations communicate with his/her foreign colleagues. As I don’t have at least two endorsements I can’t propose this on the general assembly so could anyone else propose this? Thank you. :)

1. You can only be endorsed by people in your region, so ask for endos on the regional message board.
2. Don't submit. Post the draft in an entirely new thread on this forum. Have the thread title have "Draft" and your draft's name on it.
3. This is the wrong thread for questions. The Q&A thread is for that.

You can do your homework yourself.

Also, start from GA #10. :P

(OOC: There are far worse acts from an authoritarian standpoint than that one. Generally, unless you can find actual flaws in the execution of a resolution, there’s little point in repealing something on ideological grounds. This especially applies for an authoritarian ideology.)

This is not the questions and answers thread, but as the population numbers are either roleplayed entirely, or a gameside number, trying to affect them would either depend on people's roleplayed realities and thus might or might not be applicable at all, or trying to affect them would count as a Game Mechanics illegality.

Additionally I can't think of a way to shove population control into a category without making it genocidal.

No need to be snarky. It's just that there is a dedicated Q&A thread on this forum, a couple of threads down from where you found this one. So posting questions on this one doesn't make sense.

EDIT: Wheee, 14000th post.

New Proposal

Postby Kollafjordur » Tue Dec 03, 2019 8:28 pm

I am not really sure if this is the right forum,but I want to share the rough draft of my proposal with you guys.

[b]GLOBAL WELFARE ACT[/b]
All over the world many people suffer from income inequality.Much of these people are living on the roads,impoverished and weak,and we have not done anything to stop this.It is for the betterment of our society to establish a Welfare system where money from each country in the Global Assembly is pooled together each year and distributed to the poor.Imagine all of the talent they have,wasted,because they lack the money.The plan that Kollafjordur proposes goes like this:

-Any single person that earns less than 17,000 a year will be eligible for this program
-Each country should donate 40,000 every year.This total amount of money would be equal to roughly 36,636,700 in Global Aid
-This program would help each one of our countries,the more people working the bigger our economy grows.With enough money they could get off their feet and work instead of turning to crime as a way of providing for themselves.

In conclusion,many of our countries suffer from this,even Kollafjordur.With help from the General assembly,we can end this problem.

Sincerely,
Kollafjordur

Welcome to the World Assembly! You've got the right forum, but the wrong thread. Each resolution proposal gets its own drafting thread. Create a new topic, called "[DRAFT] Name of My Proposal," and type it up there. That way the whole GA community can give you pointers and make corrections and whatnot.

In your particular case, I would advise taking a look at GA Res. #344 and seeing if it has already handled what you're trying to accomplish. Proposals that duplicate or contradict already existing resolutions violate the proposal rules (see link in my signature below) and are rejected. Your other major issue is your specification of currency amounts (17,000 what? Marche Noirian francs? East Lebatuckese rublemarks? Bigtopian megawampum?) - that's really not useful as the worth of currency and the cost of living (among other things) change across different nations, sometimes drastically. You're better off naming something like the amount of money necessary to feed the average person for one year, times the number of people per household.

Be warned that this part of the game is a marathon, not a sprint. It will take time, effort, time, thick skin, and time to get it right.

Good luck!

New Proposal

Postby Kollafjordur » Wed Dec 04, 2019 8:10 pm

This is my new proposal,please tell me what you think of it.If I don't reply back,it does not mean I am not listening to your suggestions.

Creation of an International Police Funding Office
Section I:“Creation of an International Police Funding Office”,
Section II: Regarding the Creation of an International Police Funding Office,
Subsection I: Many officers lack the funding needed to keep criminals at bay,which in turn affects the safety of the nation.This may affect tourism or the happiness of the citizens,as their belief in the nations law keeping system has fallen.
Section III: Regarding the Amount of money required from each nation to fund the Police
Subsection I: Each country shall pay 50,000 per year(Currency Varies) ,no exceptions.Total money should equal 1,078,100,000 in money(currently).
Section IV:The PFO office
Subsection I: The PFO office shall oversee that the funds are distributed equally,and will forever hold the right to change the amount of money required from the nations.The secretary would also hold this same right.

-If executed properly,the amount of crime in the GA nations will deteriorate.

Don't be that harsh.

All OOC:

1. Please stop using this thread for proposal drafts. You've already been told several times now to start a new thread for any resolution proposal.

2. Not all currencies are even roughly equivalent in value. Before the adoption of the Euro currency in continental Europe, the Italian Lira traded at about 1,700 per U.S. dollar. 50,000 lira was worth a bit over $29. This is why (as I pointed out in response to your other proposal (thread split off by a moderator) that questions of funding are best not listed as specific numerical amounts.

3. You haven't explained how the creation of this extra layer of bureaucracy will actually help police effectiveness across member nations. If every nation contributes 50,000 Brasilistani kroner per year to this committee, and the committee must disburse the funds equally, then every nation gets back 50,000 Brasilistani kroner per year minus the committee's operating costs. This does nothing except remove money from member states to no practical effect.

3(a). Alternatively, if every nation contributes 50,000 of their own currency to the committee, which then disburses the funds equally according to the total value received in a single exchange currency1, then this has the effect of giving a very small amount of aid money to nations with weak currencies, funded by nations with strong currencies. This still has no practical effect on law enforcement efficacy.

4. You need to fix these problems, and probably others which I have not mentioned, before submitting this proposal. Do not submit any further resolutions before you have made substantial alterations and waited at least a week for further suggestions, and incorporated them.

1Again, minus committee operating costs
