Gilliland, Martha W.; Gilliland, J. Richard
Planning for Higher Education, 6, 5, Apr 78

The principles state that all systems tend to become more disorderly, that they must be diverse in order to be stable, and that only those maximizing their resource utilization for doing useful work will survive.
