[quote:Anonymous Coward 76322957:MV80MTU5MjQxXzc1NTY3MTYzX0IzQjJBRjRB] All the UN really needs is a place for heads of state to meet. A small structure on Rykers Island should suffice. 30 grand a year for power and water would cover the bills. Everything that the agency has touched has turned to shit. If only it had global taxation they could fix everything. Piss on the UN. The only time it serves any successful purpose was to gain a Security Council vote for intervention in Korea. The only way that was possible was for a preplanned verbal assault on the USSR representative until he stormed out of the room. That tactic could never work again. it has been against US interests for decades--yet the USA foots the bill. How stupid is this? End it, or at least cripple it. [/quote]

United Nations could run out of money in a few weeks, Secretary General warns
The United Nations is running a deficit of $230 million, Secretary General Antonio Guterres said on Monday, and may run out of money by the end of October. In a letter intended for the 37,000 employees at the UN secretariat and obtained by CBS News’ Pamela Falk, Guterres said unspecified “additional stop-gap measures” would have to be taken to ensure salaries and entitlements are paid.
“Member States have paid only 70 percent of the total amount needed for our regular budget operations in 2019. This translates into a cash shortage of $230 million at the end of September. We run the risk of depleting our backup liquidity reserves by the end of the month,” he wrote.
To cut costs, Guterres mentioned postponing conferences and meetings and reducing services, while also restricting official travel to only essential activities and taking measures to save energy.
