Interesting if true, but in looking through the declaration at:

http://www.un.org/millennium/declaration/ares552e.htm

I can't find all the elements of your statement. Specifically I can't 
find the commitment to 'restructure' or to 'alternative time-based 
currency'. Perhaps I'm missing it, or perhaps there was another 
version released at a different time?

In that version, the word 'currency' does not appear to exist, nor 
does 'time-based', nor does, 'restructure'.

I've also had a quick scan down the current UN goals website, but 
can't see any reference to this financial restructuring:

http://www.un.org/millenniumgoals/

If you feel you are accurately paraphrasing some section, or a 
different version than the above, could you point out which?

Thanks
