What if you were put in charge of the World tomorrow? How would you run the planet?

If you have arrived onto this page from an external link or search engine, the material below will make no sense whatsoever unless you know why www.12-12-12.org was written. A very brief summary can be read by clicking here

This globally popular educational and research website lists every national and international problem in the world in a rather unusual and entertaining way, so remember to bookmark www.12-12-12.org in your favourites folder! For the record: Andronicos the author does not profess to greatness in any shape or form. Lets continue.................

Andronicos "The Great" as Director of the Human Race and Manager Planet Earth commands and Andronicos "The Cynic" responds as follows.........


Imagine you were quite wealthy in 1946. You were on the Board of directors of a relatively large American corporation that employed one thousand people and made a reasonable annual profit for its shareholders which included you.

Money from tree Even though Germany and Japan are now financially ruined following World War 2 which ended just a few months ago, word gets out that a fund is being set up to create investment for 20 German and Japanese companies. Would you invest ANY money in such ventures or would you laugh at the idea?

What if you had the vision to do so and persuaded your fellow board members to conditionally invest 10 percent of corporate profits for 10 years?

What if the investment happened to include BMW, Mercedes, Allianz, Sony, Toyota, Mitsubishi?

The return on investment would have been on a par with finding a treasure trove of jewels underneath your garden.

War Bond

This is what the Poverty and War Eradication Bond is all about. It is investing in poor people who make up Sovereign Tribes1 that have nothing and creating something huge by starting from scratch. It's not quite the same as the Marshal Plan which came into effect after the Second World War and was made of "gifts", credits and privileged access to American markets. The War Bond is an Investment.

If you are on the Board of Directors of one of the top public companies in the World, congratulations are in order because you are a class 'B' ruler of the World. With this honour and power comes responsibility. You are therefore directed to read and obey my instructions as specified in this book.

1 I generally use the expression "Sovereign Tribes" instead of "country" or "countries" throughout this book due to the prevalence of nationalism, which exists today.
