A new model for Pareto Optimality

The folks at AEQUILIBRIA have been working a model to improve business strategy.

When seeking strategy ahead, they apply S3S4ME℠ -strategy/success=systemic solution seek for maximum effectiveness.

How does it work, for example in law?

Simple: compare the public policy interest behind the development of an area of law and the development of another. Run the “attention in agenda setting test.” Better yet, “the Carnot efficiency test” applied to an area of law.

A test? How? We can use family law and child custody and parenting time matters as example. How developed is the area of law when compared to secured transactions (a body of law that is quite developed, and thus ‘approximately complete’–i.e. it is close to efficiency and effectiveness in practical application)? When compared to contracts law? To non-intentional torts? We find that family law, and custodial and parenting time “best interest of the child” law is an area of law in its epistemic and applied-development infancy. Next step: attempt to develop stronger closer to quasi-complete new paradigm in family law.

Next boost innovation: apply 3S4ME℠ itself–systemic solution seek for maximum effectiveness.🚀 We end up with an app and a business idea that, when implemented, ensure path to Pareto optimality of solution via self-enforcing means.

Better yet, what’s beautiful about the solution that tends towards Pareto optimality based on self enforcement is that, like the picture suggests, it is a business solution like water, just as the river at Pont du Gard, and as the Roman aqueduct crossing it with what has been over centuries the civilizing effect of a benevolent hegemon that the Roman Empire and several inheritors in interest (and in cultural and legal traditions) has (have) been in part. Not always and not in the entirety of their conquests, but at least in part all resulting empires have manifested at least a little benevolent hegemony. Hence the natural spreading of their civilizing inventions and the lasting over the years and minimal further systemic evolution of those early genius solutions.

The Romans were great engineers, but they were great at so much more than engineering alone. The spread of civilizing Roman aqueducts is a validation of the constructal law of design in nature and human systems of Adrian Bejan. That’s because the aqueducts continued to spread much after the demise of the Roman Empire, through the continued role undertaken by the subsequent empires. Aqueducts of the same design are present in Mexico, where obviously the Romans themselves never reached.
