@AJStream The one rule of law that powerful companies and lawyers always ignore is indigenous law

@AJStream Where rule of law is weak should not mean that mining companies should behave badly. This is 2012 not the stone age.

@AJStream Mining is all about investors and other powerful people winning ... communities with little power losing

#AJStream Mining companies ignore risk in dangerous ways. Full accounting for risk to impacted communities would change mining dynamic

@AJStream Profit accounting done for the organization not linked to environmental accounting done for the place.

#AJStream At some point it is investors that need to be held to account. Good profit on top of bad behavior unacceptable!

@AJStream Mining produces huge money profit, but triple bottom line results are hugely negative. This not taken into account by investors!

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
