Social multiplier and funding a 'Jobs Bank'
When a company in the USA fires 20 workers earning $20,000 each a year, there are savings of $200,000. If these people are not needed anyway, then the profits go up by $400,000 and investors and better off. This is good for investors. If these 20 workers can go into other jobs, then the damage to the individual worker, the family and the community is a wash ... not significant. If on the other hand, these workers cannot get other work there is an important negative impact on the workers, the families and the community. This is the multiplier effect. This suggests that a 'going business' that reduces its workforce should be assessed in some way to offset the negative impact on individual fired workers, the families and the community. One way of doing this would be for the organization to contribute money capital to a 'Jobs Bank'. In turn the 'Jobs Bank' extends credit to organizations that have a workforce doing valuable work in the community but not able to support these activities by the cash flow from these valuable activities.

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
