Pareto’s principle, also known as the 80/20 rule, defines an unequal relationship between any two factors. Understanding the 80/20 rule helps managers pinpoint causes of problems, measure employee productivity, and interpret product sales in order to improve the overall functionality of the organization. Pareto’s principle can also be tested and applied in science –researchers utilized the principle in cancer research. In all areas, the 80/20 rule helps society understand how to efficiently maximize benefits and minimize detriments.
Pareto’s Principle Explained
In 1906, Vilfredo Pareto, an Italian economist, noted that 80% of Italy was owned by 20% of the population. 35 years later, American management consultant and engineer, Joseph M. Juran, interpreted and applied Pareto’s finding to management. Using production and sales as an example, the 80/20 rule states that 20% of a company’s product line accounts for 80% of the company’s sales volume. Respectively, that 20% of the product line would occupy 80% of the company’s warehouse space. Pareto’s principle, in this case, helps the organization’s managers make intuitive decisions concerning production and sales.

Paid surrogate motherhood has become a subject undergoing intense research and scrutiny in recent years because of multiple cases, including baby M and many others. It raises a moral question: is this practice equivalent to selling babies? The answer is unclear and the arguments made for it often lead to a “slippery slope.” In attempting to answer this question I will argue that paid surrogacy should be legal in certain circumstances and under regulation. To start I will defend paid surrogacy,…
