Hazel Henderson:

"In 1995, I co-organized the NGO, Global Commission to Fund the United Nations with many proposals for taxing commercial uses of the global commons: atmosphere, climate, oceans, biodiversity, the electromagnetic spectrum, space and the newest commons: the global financial system. The Commission’s report The UN: Policy and Financing Alternatives, eds. Harlan Cleveland, Hazel Henderson and Inge Kaul (Elsevier Science 1995), examined such taxes to help provide global public goods: health, education, access to clean water, food and basic human needs."
