BANKING AND FINANCE
Hugely profitable, but services essential to the “south” are not available because the profits not big enough.
BANKING
BANKING is a STRAND in the modern socio-enviro-economic system. There is a widely held belief that the banking sector creates wealth, but this is not real. The banking sector merely consolidates wealth created in other sectors and enables the concentration of wealth by those who are in positions of power and influence.
BANKING is a lubricant for the functioning of the socio-enviro-economic, but neither the engine for the system nor the fuel!
Insurance sector.
Insurance is an industry whose purpose if to address the issue of risk, and enable risk to be managed because financial provisions have been made.

Maybe the most important part of the socio-enviro-economic system is the 'wage' component. Everyone needs access to money in order to purchase basic needs, and then more to have a decent quality of life. Money may come from inherited wealth, but mostly money comes from income / wages associated with employment. The availability of employment is a complex issue, and what has happened in the past gives little guidance to what needs to happen in the future.

FOR PROFIT BUSINESS GO TOP

BUSINESS-ORGANIZATIONS
Business organizations have been one of the most important drivers of socio-economic progress over the last 200 years. They have responded to profit motivation but not so much to the issue of the associated environmental degradation. Business organizations more than any other segment of the socio-enviro-economic system must change to make the world a better place.
The original purpose of economic activity was to improve and maintain quality of life for an individual and the family. For most of recent history there has been a favorable relationship between the profit performance of an organization and the wages of people, which in turn improved and maintained quality of life. This assumption is baked into much of the socio-enviro-economic analysis that is routinely reported to the public. However, in the past 40 years productivity has increased at a fast pace, with the result that less and less people are needed for the same level of production. The dynamic is more productivity leads to less labor and more profit ... in other words a good result for owners of the organization and a bad result for working people and society as a whole. MDIA accounts for not only the impact on the organization, but the impact on people and the impact on place (society).

Management, governance and administration are often conflated. This is a problem because they are not the same and reflect very different ways of operating. The a big part of the main TVM thesis is that management has been very strong for the optimization of profit in the corporate sector at the expense of both the broader society and the underslying environment. The modern economic trajectory is dangerously unsustainable and must be reformed. This takes management.

LOGISTICS
Logistics have become an important part of the modern global economic system, combining huge improvements in the efficiency of the physical components of the system ... ports, cranes, ships, aircraft ... and the information technology that has made it possible to manage the system in a reliable manner.
Logistics ... mainly ships, have made international trade possible and over time increasingly economically efficient. The application of engineering and technology to optimize for cost and profit performance has been impressive. Social and environmental innovation now needs to catch up.

ADVERTISING
Most advertising is done to make customers buy products and services. Very little advertising is used to inform people about things that are important, but more usually to misinform the public in ways that are all about more sales and profits for the advertisers. This is important because the consumption driven economic model is unsustainable with more and more degradation of natural capital. Advertising is also used more and more to influence elections, and is doing serious damage to the democratic process.

MEDIA / JOURNALISM
Free and open journalism is an important component of a successful society ... recognized, for example in the First Amendment to the US Constitution. When good journalism disappears, society suffers. Where any particular segment of society controls the press and access to meaningful information whether it is business or politicians, the public at large pay the price. Social media and technology have challenged long established norms and many unintended and undesirable consequences are becoming increasingly apparent.

SPECIALIZATION IN SECTORS HAS DELIVERED MAJOR EFFICIENCIES THROUGH SPECIALIZATION

PROCESSES THAT HAVE ENABLED PRODUCTIVITY SO THAT PEOPLE ARE NOT CONSTAINED BY THE AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS

L0700-SI-SECTORS-INDUSTRIES
L0700-SI-SECTORS-INDUSTRIES
Sector specialization is one of the characteristics of much of the modern economy. It has enabled a high degree of technical specialization which has been very valuable in achieving technical improvement and more technical efficiency. National and international governance institutions have tended to organize along sector lines and this has helped to promote the interestes of sectors in some cases without taking into consideration cross ector issues.
TPB Note: In my own experience most development initiatives from the World Bank, the United Nations and others have been designed with a single sector focus. They have frequently failed to deliver on their planned goals simply because they needed support from other sector activities which were weak or non-esistant. It was my experience that the success of a PLACE depended on ALL SECTORS coming together in a holistic manner, and it was my experience that the development organizations had very poor mechanisms to solve problems outside the limits of the sector or the limits of the project. The TVIA initiative retains the role of a sector from the technical perspective, but moves on to STREAMS / STRANDS / STRINGS because of the importance of links and connections in understanding PROGRESS and PERFORMANCE.

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
