Kamin's First Law: All currencies will decrease in value and purchasing power over the long term, unless they are freely and fully convertable into gold and that gold is traded freely without restrictions of any kind.

      - Law of Life and Nature

Katz's Eighth Maxim: Try to find the real tense of the report you are reading: Was it done, is it being done, or is it something to be done? Reports are now written in four tenses: past tense, present tense, future tense, and pretense. Watch for novel uses of "contractor grammar", defined by the imperfect past, the insufficient present, and the absolutely perfect future.
      - Law of Life and Nature

Katz's Fifth Maxim: Watch out for formal briefings; they often produce an avalanche (a high-level snow job of massive and overwhelming proportions).

Katz's Second Maxim: Inventing is easy for staff outfits. Stating a problem is much harder. Instead of stating problems, people like to pass out half-accurate statements together with half-available solutions which they can't finish and which they want you to finish.
      - Law of Life and Nature

Katz's Seventh Maxim: Most organizations can't hold more than one idea at a time. Thus complementary ideas are always regarded as competitive. Further, like a quantized pendulum, an organization can jump from one extreme to the other, without ever going through the middle.
      - Law of Life and Nature

Katz's Sixth Maxim: The difficulty of the coordination task often blinds one to the fact that a fully coordinated piece of paper is not supposed to be either the major or the final product of the organization, but it often turns out that way.
      - Law of Life and Nature

Katz's Third Maxim: Every organization is self-perpetuating. Don't ever ask an outfit to justify itself, or you'll be covered with facts, figures, and fancy. The criterion should rather be, "What will happen if the outfit stops doing what it's doing?" The value of an organization is more easily determined this way.
      - Law of Life and Nature

Kelley's Law: Last guys don't finish nice.
      - Law of Life and Nature

Kelly's Law: An executive will always return to work from lunch early if no one takes him.
