Vilfredo Pareto

Vilfredo Pareto

Italian economist and sociologist
Men follow their sentiments and their self-interest, but it pleases them to imagine that they follow reason. And so they look for, and always find, some theory which, a posteriori, makes their actions appear to be logical. If that theory could be demolished scientifically, the only result would be that another theory would be substituted for the first one, and for the same purpose.More Vilfredo Pareto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Increase in the wealth per capita fosters democracy; but the latter, at least according to what we have been able to observe up to now, entails great destruction of wealth and even eventually dries up the sources of it. Hence it is its own grave-digger, it destroys what gave it birth.More Vilfredo Pareto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Give me a fruitful error any time, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections. You can keep your sterile truth for yourself.More Vilfredo Pareto quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
