On top of the U.S.-China trade war and an upsurge in technology nationalism, borders all over the world are closing to the flow of people, goods and services. Slowing trade and shrinking supply chains will hurt the most vulnerable countries in the developing world. How can we save the multilateral trading system?

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.
