UNITS OF ACCOUNT
UNITS OF ACCOUNT FOR EVERYTHING THAT MATTERS IN THE SOCIO-ENVIRO-ECONOMIC SYSTEM
HUMAN VALUE / NATURE'S VALUE / FINANCIAL CAPITAL / PROCESSES and PRODUCTS
Quality of Life / Natural Capital / Corporate Performance / Financial Capital / Physical Capital / Environment
MULTIPLE UNITS OF ACCOUNT ... CONTEXT
WAY MORE POWERFUL THAN A SIMPLISTIC MONETIZING OF IMPACT
Conventional financial accounting uses money as its unit of account, and there are established methods for the use of multiple currencies when this is needed because of the nature of the business.
Money and conventional double entry accounting was a very powerful system for accountability when the economy was relatively small and impact on society and the environment was ignored without much consequence.
But the 21st century is different. The population of the world is at record levels, and the degradation of the environment in many different ways has become consequential.
There is a need now for UNITS OF ACCOUNT that are relevent for ALL the impacts associated with economic transactions.
The money measure needs to be better understood. It is common to use a reference currency like the US dollar, but local currency also matters, and there may be funding currency as well. Besides the US$, other reference currencies might be the Euro, Japanese Yen or Chinese Yuan
With TVIA, multiple UNITS OF ACCOUNT are used in a similar way to account for the way in which different activities impact ALL the CAPITALS that make up the SOCIO-ENVIRO-ECONOMIC SYSTEM. This is more powerful and more flexible than the idea of valuing everything using money and markets
