Finish this sentence... (World Ranking system)

My thoughts on the need for a World Ranking system are documented here: http://kenlarsennc.com/bgWorldRankingProposal.htm Yesterday I made some edits to it.

You're right in citing the example of Ghana. The value of their points system would have to diminished considerably because of their isolation from the rest of the world. World golf rankings already do this. It can be done for backgammon.

Barry Silliman and I created and maintain a system for the U.S. based upon ABT points. It shows what can be done, but it has flaws (see caveat 3). If we work together, we can eventually fix the flaws and reap the rewards (cited at the top of my proposal page).
