Phi Beta Iota: When we have the True Cost App on every cell phone, backed up by the living database so that every products, service, policy, and behavior can be easily and reliably evaluated by citizens, the world will change radically. “Buycott” is a concept advanced by Jim Turner for many years, and while www.buycott.com is a good start, it is a tiny tiny baby step. We have a brilliant future once the common sense of the public can be translated into direct action at every point of sale.
