I learned about the Parkinson law in my early year at school in Britain. I encountered the law again when I took the subject public policy making and administration during my first university year. It is an interesting law and it hope you will find humoring if not useful:
“Parkinson’s Law” could be generalized further still as:
- The demand upon a resource tends to expand to match the supply of the resource.
An extension is often added to this, stating that:
- The reverse is not true.
This generalization has become very similar to the economic law of demand; that the lower the price of a service or commodity, the greater the quantity demanded.
Some define Parkinson’s Law in regard to time as:
- The amount of time which one has to perform a task is the amount of time it will take to complete the task.
