If I Ruled the World – Give All Community Budgets Equivalent Funding for Public Services

One of the biggest struggles in the country is the disparity of resources between various counties, cities, and communities.  Seems that some cities have everything figured out and needs are being met while others experience the opposite.  If I ruled the world, I would try to get more balanced results for things like crimes, fires, amount of homeless, etc.  I would do this by looking at the cities that have some of the best results in those areas and use them as benchmarks.  Essentially, I would start by having similar spending percentages and staffing and see how that drives results.  I would then monitor the results and make adjustments under the advisement of some of the gurus from the benchmark cities.
