AtoBC, The Anti-Loss Method
A lost method, created by the Dutch guilds 800 years ago, to take control over a company's losses. (Quick and dirty preview.) More
Eight hundred years ago the Dutch Guilds developed a method to take control over Company’s losses. They didn’t know what caused them, just how to handle them. By the 16th century the Netherlands was rich enough to fight off the Spanish empire in the Eighty Years' War, and simultaneous fight off the English in four wars.
After the demise of the Guilds, family businesses that descended from the Guilds kept using the method. In changing economic circumstances, it was dismissed in 1970. In 1978 the only place the method was still used was in trade school books. Just one of those strange things kids must learn, but seem to have no real connection to the world.
By 1975 Dutch companies started to run into losses again. Without a method to take control of losses, companies make shocking, costly mistakes that only serve to increase their losses.
We have rediscovered the method and developed it for use by modern companies and governments.
