The inventor/originator of Circular Economy [CE] was Ellen MacArthur, which GE was intrigued by her CE. GE proposes (herein) some expansions & extensions of CE [E3C] such as:

  •  Modifying the Constitution of United World [UW] [CUW], to limit the production of products in UW & Experimental States in UW [SUW] [XSUW] & SUW suitable for repair, resale, replacement, restyling, production &/or improvement [R4PI] NOT according to the principles of CE &/or E3C, especially in UW Free Tax Zones [UWFTZ]. For example, a principle of CE is to avoid the necessity of adding or using raw materials &/or including new parts for R4PI. The producer or seller is limited to paying for the cost of purchased materials exceeding 10% of the net cost of the product for sale to the end user. The overall effect is that the overall (net) cost of raw materials, parts or any level of assembly, storage, selling cost & profit or any other cost of original products to be sold to end users are subject to  sales &/or VAT. But, the cost of R4PI products, produced in UWFTZ, are completely free of taxes, if less than taxable material included in net cost more than 10% of the net selling cost (excluding profit), sold to end users located in UWFTZ or not. 
  • Typically, a used Rolls Royce subject to R4PI every five years is cheaper, better & better looking than the cheapest Chevrolet using less than 10% of the iron, steel & rubber tires during its life span.
  • The policies of United World Foundation [UWF] promotes CE, R4PI & Printed 3D Production [P23D]... w/intended-mini-scale-production [IMSP]. The raw materials are mostly widely, worldwide, available & extremely cheap to find & refine. These elements & compounds can be formed by P23D into 3D parts, easily shipped to locations near end-users (on the way, or assembled on site) to be included in (or assembled into) end products, such as buildings, houses, cars... & coffee makers & cups. The how-to part of manufacture {HTPM] are also widely available, generated by intelligent people in many languages & distributable via Internet.  
  • Hewlett Packard [UWFTZHP] & (possibly) Apple are sought to provide suitable tablets, telephones & micro-computers as the terminal end of HTPM for end users to make parts, assemblies & products locally where they reside, near final end users of such end products.
  • UWF Policies also limit the life of patents for different numbers of years, to reward patterers of new ideas. This speeds up the developments, improvements & wider application of new ideas for products. Sources located in UWFTZ of new ideas which can be patented may also be free of taxes for the period during the life of their patents.
  • To be continued.
