General Obligation Bond

In the United States, a municipal bond in which the issuing locality pledges to use all revenues at its disposal to pay bondholders, including the raising of property taxes. Should a sufficient number of residents not pay their property taxes that it impacts revenue for bondholders, the terms of the bond legally require the municipality to raise property taxes to make up the shortfall. There are two basic types of general obligation bonds. A limited GO allows for the raising of property taxes up to a certain percentage, while an unlimited GO theoretically allows the municipality to levy taxes of up to 100% of a property's value. Because an unlimited GO provides a great incentive to pay property tax on time, and because many states only allow such a bond to be issued following a vote on the matter, credit ratings agencies usually rate them higher. However, both types of GO are generally rated highly.

Management and nonmanagement go-getters are those employees who regard gainsharing as a positive change that is beneficial to the organization and/or themselves.
Go-getters emphasize the positive aspects of gainsharing and encourage the fence-sitters to become more involved and join their coalition; opponents emphasize the negative aspects of gainsharing and discourage the fence-sitters from participating in gainsharing activities.
The long-term stability of the gainsharing intervention depends on whether management and nonmanagement go-getters, fence-sitters, and opponents believe that the intervention fulfills their sometimes conflicting interests.
