Hospitals & Asylums
I finally updated the Atlas for the first time since 2007. I even estimated the currency exchange adjustment country by country; all that is left to do is weight the votes by population for the economic democracy of the future, its not technically required yet. I wasn’t the only one struggling to lift that great weight. The UN Human Development Report 2007/2008 took a vacation; they laud in their new report on human mobility. I pray they have found a safe place to do their work. Although the international economic coup owns more privacy than ever there is now hope that working together we can redress the grievances of a world of people too intimidated to represent themselves.
The day after I submitted my unanalyzed atlas to the international economic community, on the 23rd, a health inspector visited my new home on the basis of an “anonymous tip”, to sentence me to a month of vigorous exercise doing environmental reclamation in my backyard that otherwise would not have been done. The health inspector was a relief; normally they send bio-terrorists. I guess only dirty people are clean. These routine invasions of privacy are obviously the cause of the “credit” crisis, and whereas the ruling elite go unchecked, it is also the result. For the economy to recover these anonymous personal investigations must cease. Governments and corporate elites must cease to abuse their petitioners and read, write and pay more efficiently and beneficially than before.

The 2010 World Atlas: MDGs 1990-2015 and the 2009 Factbook HA-31-5-10
The Atlas has been updated to record the low-point of the global Recession. Economic growth, around 3.5% since 1946, contracted 0.8% in 2009 and global trade plummeted nearly 25% from 2008 levels, the largest single year drop since WWII. Purchasing power parity of GWP dropped to $70.29 trillion (2009 est.) from $70.84 trillion (2008 est.) and the official exchange rate GWP was $58.07 trillion U.S. dollars. Per capita income retreated about 2% to $10,500 (2009 est.) from $10,700 (2008 est.) as global unemployment rose from 7% in 2008 to nearly 9% in 2009 while underemployment, especially in the developing world, remained much higher. The number of hungry people rose from 700 million to a record high of 1.2 billion. The IMF reports economic growth to be stable at 1.7% in the first quarter and 3.2% in the second quarter of 2010.
The UN Millennium Development Goal Report 2009 brings into question whether Goal 1 to halve the poverty, <$1 day, from 45.5% in 1990 to 22.75% in 2015, has been jeopardized by the recession. In 2007, only 21.5% were extremely poor, however the recession plunged 100 million more people below $1 a day and poverty thus increased to 22.9%, so in 2009 Goal 1 was not achieved. Both 90% primary school enrollment rate and 50% reduction in people needing water are both achievable at current rates of growth. The AIDS drugs arrived and rates of infection and death went down. To achieve all the health related goals the utility bill for water and sewage connections must be paid, folic acid multi-vitamins are damned. The short term plan for 2010 is for the bailouts to cease and ODA to exceed the $154 billion committed. The long term plan is to levy a carbon tax to finance eco-friendly water, sewage and electricity (solar) connections in slums by 2030. The medium term plan to finance the MDGs for 2015 is for the U.S. Dollar and Euro basket to experimentally appreciate developing nation currencies - equalizing exchange rate GDP with purchasing power parity GDP rate, in pursuit income equality and more purchasing (selling) power so:
GDP XR = GDP PPP (developing nations) Þ GDP PPP > GDP XR (all nations)
