Physical capital ... essential for prosperity ... but not fully appreciated by those that trade in investments.

Real risk is a very low priority for most financial analysts ... yet real risk is growing faster than almost anyone realizes ... and mostly aggravated by the big decisions that are getting made ...

Productivity improvement has been one of the keys to improved quality of life over the past 200 years. Structural changes in production processes as labor use declines and energy and equipment use increases are having major impacts on society (PEOPLE) and the environment (PLANET) while making it possible to improve PROFIT. With money metrics most productivity improvement benefits profit without commensurate improvement in people and environmental benefit.

In my view, the Hansen report is incredibly important ... and highlights my issue concerning the accounting for risk and the need for better metrics about risk and the policy response to issues of risk ... perhaps the most important report I have seen in my lifetime.

A singular focus on money profit accounting is bound to get the wrong outcomes ... better metrics that include impact on people and planet can be a game changer

Story
Tagline
Value is the basis of a sound economy and quality of life, not profit and greed!
Introduction
I learned some engineering and economics at Cambridge, and then some accountancy in London. My work with the private corporate sector informed me of technological potential, and then consultancy with UN,  World Bank and others showed me the huge dysfunction of leadership and terribly missed opportunities. Working on value metrics to supplement profit accountancy!
Bragging rights
Played rugby at international schoolboy level!
