  • There are good people everywhere
  • Some very good leaders
  • Relatively few bad folk ... but some are very powerful as heads of countries and criminal organizations
  • Some ultra wealthy folk ... amazing financial success but at an unknown social and environmental cost
.
ORGANIZATIONS ARE THE ECONOMY
Huge corporate organizations dominate everything.
Many investors and executives believe that profit is the main and only thing.
This is WRONG and very dangerous for society and the world!

  • Almost the whole of global GDP flows through corporate business organizations
  • They are responsible for the deployment of technological innovations to improve productivity
  • They optimize their decisions to maximize profits and benefit for stockholders.
  • To a great extent, they ignore social impact and environmental impact and push back against regulation ... even where there are critical needs
  • Without major and massive refocus by corporate organizations the global future is very bleak!

GOVERNMENTS HAVE IMPORTANT ROLE
Good government is more important than big government
... many critical services should be provided by government

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
