The challenges facing a developed country include:

  • Dramatically reducing their impact on their environment, particularly through greenhouse gas emissions (see global warming), with affordable political and economic cost.
  • Avoiding incentives to pollute such as fossil fuel subsidies.
  • Maintaining security - ideally through creating a world in which all countries and all people have a stake in the shared prosperity, and thus have a shared interest in peace and cooperation.
  • Aiding poorer countries achieve prosperity sustainably, for example through ending agricultural subsidies and carefully targeted foreign aid.
