One entity, the most wealthy, has $20M dollars, and this is more than twice the amount of the next wealthiest entity, which has only $9M dollars. The wealthiest entity has no heirs, and the expected lifespan of an entity is 100 years. There is a fixed amount of money among the entities in the population, and interactions redistribute the money, thus changing the relative wealth of the entities. Scenario 1: The wealthiest entity hordes its wealth, provoking both envy and disdain among the other entities, and so the wealthiest entity has a negative reputation.

This section reviews some basic elements of the theory that are necessary for its application and use. Unified Service Theory (UST) in a Nutshell There might be many candidate unified service theories; however, the one espoused herein is as follows: Services are production processes wherein each customer supplies one or more input components for that customer’s unit of production. The UST is founded on the input/output (I/O) model of operations: all production processes transform inputs into outputs.
