Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Just a reminder that annual defence spending is around $1.5 trillion.

Annual meaning every damn year.

Just imagine what could be done with that if it wasn't wasted. With a peace dividend of that magnitude you could fund a scheme like this, solve world hunger, and barely notice the difference.

Throwing a few tens of billions a year at sustainables wouldn't be a bad thing either.
