The U.N. has a choice. It can undertake the same kinds of self-motivated initiatives that many U.S. government agencies already have undertaken to bring their budgets into line with the new period of budget austerity. Or it can abrogate the important responsibility for accomplishing genuine cost control to the Department of State and the U.S. Congress and let them impose long-sought and urgently needed changes in the U.N. system through targeted and selective reductions in the U.S. contributions to that system.
