This is the first of a series of papers on the properties of the weak and electromagnetic currents of the hadrons in the bootstrap theory of strong interactions. In a bootstrap theory, there are many self-consistency conditions relating these weak and electromagnetic parameters to each other. We develop a formalism designed to take the fullest advantage of such bootstrap-like relations. In fact, we conjecture that the weak and electromagnetic properties of the hadrons are determined to a large extent, and perhaps completely, by self-consistency requirements. Some simple calculations of the weak and electromagnetic parameters pertaining to the octet of baryons and decuplet of resonances are given. The comparison of the results of these calculations with the experimental numbers indicates that the above conjecture holds, at least in this case.
