There are ways forward ... not one, but many. A single silver bullet is not the right approach ... rather there needs to be a use of resources that gets the most value for the society as possible. The way forward has several main components: more meaningful development data and metrics, a focus on community scale initiatives

Chapter 6. INSTITUTIONAL CAPACITY - ENABLING ENVIRONMENT
What is institutional capacity ... the enabling environment? It is a lot more than just governance and government, the law and regulation? It is also the infrastructure and the social services like health and education, and the financial services. Institutional capacity may be a major constraint on the socio-economic progress of the community. What is the underlying productivity of the community. If the community is surplus producing it can go forward and improve its quality of life ... otherwise it cannot. The concept is simple ... and explains the endemic economic and development failure that is pervasive on the planet.

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
