Votes and reviews in Consumerium[edit]

Votes - If you are a concientious consumer you'll want to look at these.


Zeroity (Hedgeness) == % of votes are 0's - If you are interested in politics, disputes, truth, wikis in general, mis- and disinformation etc. you'll want to keep an eye on this


Reviews - If you are a hedonist consumer you'll want to look at only these.

Economical metrics of companies[edit]

Size == revenue. This when presented on an industry wide scale helps consumers pick out reasonably sized companies and avoid the huge ones. from DBpedia. for over 40,000 companies


Employability == years of employment provided / Million € of vested capital - If you're a socialist consumer you'll want to look for high employability. Also applicable for environmentalists and responsible capitalists number of employees ( all companies and total assets ( for PLCs only ) from DBpedia.. Corporate structure may affect reliability of unadjusted employment years provided. Should not compare across different types of businesses like Cooperatives and Corporations.


Payments Per Investment (PPI) == ¢ of paid wages, taxes, donations and dividents / € of vested capital - How much does the company return money per investment to society Note that this metric can exceed 100 ¢ / €. These figures will be available from PLCs' yearly reports but not usually for other types of businesses


Labor intensity (of industry) == years of employment provided / Million € of revenue. If you're an environmentalist or globalist or equalist consumer use this to locate industries, products and services that don't burden planet Earth so much. Probably the only relation to revenue that makes perfect sense. Again, same thing as with employability, both numbers or figures within usability from DBpedia.


High dividents - If you are concerned about capitalism or want to get into ethical investing this is for you. High dividents mean usually that the investors are into it for the long run not just to gamble around, so the executives are more likely to make sustainability, ethics, good governance and taking care of employees an issue.


Profit / Loss - High profit is really not "You must be ripping the consumer off" but more like "You must be doing something right". Loss might mean a lot of things. Maybe the business is going through a rough patch and they need your business. Maybe their offerings just don't stand up to the competition in which case you might want to take your business elsewhere. Hard to tell without knowing the background. from DBpedia.
