International Online University?

According to the Secretary General of the United Nations, Mr. Kofi Annan "..We also need to explore the possibility of creating an open international university. Surely, experts can think of many more ideas along these lines."

The concept of an International Learning institution sounds like a no brainer ... or is it? Can and should the developed world share in this knowledge transfer knowing full well that they might be loosing some competitive advantages? Are the costs too much to make this a reality? What advantages if any exist for an international learning institution?
