The Basic Concepts of True Value Metrics
Chapter 8 ... Using True Value Metrics

8-6 Some Last Thoughts

As Good as the People

Data are powerful

Kept secret because of what they reveal

The world is full of good people

My experience has been that almost everywhere in the world ordinary people are perfectly nice and would like to have a better quality of life courtesy of their own hard work. None of the nice people are waiting for a 'hand out” but they would like to have more opportunity. The problem is that relatively few people are making big decisions and have positions of power and wealth that is perpetuated while nice ordinary people are trapped at the bottom of the pyramid. The time series data about concentration of economic wealth shows how serious this problem is … and how ineffective the progress out of poverty programs have been. But with data there can be major paradigm shift … and hopefully soon

Refining the TVM methodology

There will always be a lot of work to do to keep the TVM methodology relevant and robust and useful in all situations. The Open Source movement is a model for fast development and progress in the IT space … and something similar is needed for TVM data, its acquisition and use. There will always be room to improve the way TVM works.

Training

Training is going to be a part of the process of adopting the TVM methodology. Training will be required for individuals looking to push the methodology into new areas and also for people looking to be helpful at any level of the process.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer. The goal is for it to remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
