What you had to say seemed to make a whole lot of sense. I learned some Keynesian economics at Cambridge 50 years ago, then did accountancy and corporate work for a couple of decades before doing assignments for the World Bank and the UN for another couple of decades. The science and technology we have now is way more powerful than what we had 50 years ago, but our socio-economic productivity has progressed rather little, and to the extent that there is productivity improvement it has gone to investor profit and not to a wider society. Keynes did not like stimulus or pump-priming ... but wanted an adequate level of investment. Austerity is absolutely what the world does NOT need!

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
