EGOS 2012: The Black Hole

The link below will provide readers with my 2012 paper and presentation to the European Group for Organization Studies, entitled, “SELF-REINFORCEMENT AND NEGATIVE ENTROPY:
THE BLACK HOLE OF BUSINESS-SCHOOL RESEARCH.”  This is partly a paper on self-reinforcing organizations, and I certainly think that idea applies to the publish-or-perish mindlessness of the present academic research enterprise.  It is also a more complete discussion of my model of that system, which was adapted for my 2019 article in The American Statistician.
