We review some possible improvements of mean-field theory for application to nuclear-binding systematics. Up to now, microscopic theory has been less successful than models starting from the liquid drop in accurately describing the global binding systematics. We believe that there are good prospects for developing a better global theory, using modern forms of energy-density functionals and treating correlation energies systematically by the RPA.
