Create World as a legal entity, and use it to account and pay for contributions for public benefit.
The issue is, value only exists in context of supply and demand, and
However, those only exist in context of identities. If you want to work for
world, and the world has no identity, then you're out of luck, kind of.
the most idealistic people create things for the world,
in open source --
as open source software, research, ideas, etc. -- and yet, these
are not appropriately valued, because legally there's no recipient identity.
The world identity would work like a global legal identity, and a default
recipient of public contributions, that then people who write, speak,
etc., could register their contributions for the global public benefit
IDs could be on something like Namecoin), and then get compensated for
their contributions (i.e., "paid" by the world's identity).

||//and then get compensated for their contributions (i.e., "paid" by the world's identity).//
||A bit of explanation, plx.
||Well, currently public sectors are represented via national governments,
the organizations, where governments are partners, such as ISO, UN,
etc., kind of work that way, paying for standards and security. So, the
model may be workable, just not applied through enabling
everyone to freely register their contributions, or create a market
where they get their contributions registered.
||That explains the last two words in the sentence...
||Well we always called him Bob, so he's already got an identity.
||[Skewed], or is it Alice? So.. does the Bob receive all the GPL stuff? How
is this being
registered? Umm, and for that matter, how would it look like someone
suing the Bob?
||How does the world take a defective contribution back to the
shop, or get a refund?

||Like, when someone comes up with a potentially damaging, dangerous
idea on Halfbakery? I guess, via negative pricing, and fines, expressed via
on individual basis?
||If DaVinci came up with mind-damaging
art, which then ended up distributed via some priests. What ought the world do?
||Polly Higgins - Ecocide [link] is somewhat like this.
