Accounting for Everything ... Multi Dimension ... Multi Perspective ... Every Issue
True Value Accounting
A VERY BIG IDEA to make it possible to change the world for the better. Peter Drucker famously said that you manage what you measure. Navigate to our True Value Metrics resources
As a society, we measure profit and economic (GDP) growth but we don't measure all sorts of things that really matter and deliver happiness. If you want to change the game, you change the way the game is scored. This is why True Value Accounting is an essential tool. This website provides links to many of the resources that have been used in developing the concepts.

Many IDEAS
Navigate to much more about IDEAS here But without the right sort of METRICS, many good ideas can never be progress. If we maintain a focus on conventional money profit for decision making, many good IDEAS will remain purely academic... and that will be catastrophic!

BAD THINGS ... HUNGER, POVERTY, DISEASE, WAR, VIOLENCE, GENOCIDE
None of these things should have happened. None of these things should be happening today. The system is dysfunctional. We should be proactive to stop them being repeated ...
Starving children

Pol-Pot regime in Cambodia

Rwanda genocide

Liberia (just outside my old office in Monrovia)

Medical technology

The PURPOSE of economic activity should be to give PEOPLE a better quality of life without doing damage to the PLANET. To do this, there is the application of human ingenuity, knowledge, technology and financial capital in what may be called MAN BUILT CAPITAL (MBC)

Example: Oil and gas technology
GOOD PEOPLE ... There are some people who are amazingly good.
Nelson Mandella

Desmond Tutu

Pope Francis

But the really big challenge is to get more than 7 billion people to ALL make better decisions to help make a better world.
TVM/MDIA also has a PLANET or NATURAL CAPITAL perspective

Natural capital ... SUN, PLANET, FAUNA, FLORA are the foundation of everything ...

MORE NAVIGATION
(1) METRICS FOR A COMPLEX WORLD
SUSTAINABILITY ACCOUNTING
You manage what you measure ... therefore measure what matters. Measure and account for people and planet as well as money and profit.
5) THE MAN BUILT REAL ECONOMY - PHYSICAL ASSETS
MACHINERY, VEHICLES. BUILDINGS, INFRASTRUCTURE Everything that people have devised and built to improve productivity and quality of life
(9) THE PLACE PERSPECTIVE
COMMUNITIES, CITIES, COUNTRIES, ETC.
Think global ... act local ... in a PLACE. Everything happens in a place. Place enables accountability.
(2) THE PEOPLE ECONOMY / HUMAN AND SOCIAL CAPITAL
Happiness and Quality of Life. Measure these and have them important in the metrics.
(6) THE CONSUMPTION ECONOMY
Goods and services that enable quality of life for people, but also deplete resources and degrade the environment
(10) IDEAS and INITIATIVES
Brains produce ideas ... and in turn this enable progress. An idea without investment and organization is interesting but not important.
(3) THE NATURAL ECONOMY / NATURAL CAPITAL
Natural systems, environment, ecosystems, biodiversity, etc. These are the ESSENTIAL foundation for absolutely everything.
(7) THE KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY
Facts, data, information, knowledge, wisdom ... misinformation. Better knowledge can be used for amazing things ... or not!
(11) ISSUES
Possibilities are amazing but PERFORMANCE is abysmal. There are thousasnds of issues ALL of which need attention.
(4) THE FINANCIAL ECONOMY
Money, banking, financial services, financial wealth. Metrics for these are strong, but without people and planet are nothing.
(8) GOVERNANCE / ENABLING ENVIRONMENT
Institutional and policy framework, institutions and enabling environment. In too many cases on constraint on progress.
(12) ABOUT ... THE BURGESS PERSPECTIVE
How various Burgess initiative have been evolving for decades. Many pieces in progress, but not much finished.
