How we talk about progress and performance ... or not

When numbers about progress and performance are missing, then there is no conversation that is grounded in reality and it becomes easy to promulgate 'fake news' and the appearance of good performance without much reality.

STOCK MARKET INDEXES
The United Nations does a lot of 'big picture' metrics ... but much less about management metrics suited to making better decisions

New York Stock Exchange (NYSE)
Dow from 1998 to 2016
An impressive increase in the index ... but what does it really mean?
In large part the profits of business increased while the wealth of society as a whole was diminishing.
This is the behavior that one must expect when the only management measure that is used everywhere is money profit performance for organizations, and money income and financial wealth for individuals.

Dow from 1927 to 2017 adjusted for consumer prices (CPI)
The Dow index has increased by an impressive amount over the long term ... but it hardly represents any significant reality. There are only a very few large cap stocks and these are changed from time to time in a way that eliminates the failing companies. The S&P 500 is a singificantly more represeantative index.
The Dow ... We’re Already at Dow 30000, You Just Don’t Know It
The blue-chip index is a poor measure of what investors are doing
By JAMES MACKINTOSH Updated Jan. 25, 2017 2:06 p.m. ET

THE FINANCING OF INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT ASSISTANCE
The financing of international development assistance has been both rather modest and also quite ineffective. More and better are both needed.

Segmentation of FDI fund flows
The financing of international development assistance has been both rather modest and also quite ineffective. More and better are both needed.
Remittances are one of the most important area of growth and likely one of the most efficient in terms of delivering poverty reduction at a low cost. It can also be noted that the banking sector and financial services industry charges very high prices for a service that is vital but low cost for the banks!

BANK LENDING BY SECTOR
The financing of international development assistance has been both rather modest and also quite ineffective. More and better are both needed.

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
