“The essential formula is that taxpayers can be scared into funding new programs.” Does that concept seem familiar?
THE UNITED NATIONS: AN UNCONSTRAINED BUREAUCRACY by JAMAL MUNSHI
ABSTRACT: The United Nations is financed mostly by taxpayers from a few donor countries but the large and growing bureaucracy is too far removed from those taxpayers to be directly accountable to them. It is run by unelected, unaccountable, undisciplined, and incompetent bureaucrats. The organization’s size, budget, and scope are unconstrained. The budget funding process provides perverse incentives for these bureaucrats to increase the size and scope of their organization simply by creating multitudes of agencies and programs, and by inventing problems and environmental crises set on a global scale.1
