The 20/80 society is a concept that Der Spiegel journalists Hans-Peter Martin and Harald Schumann wrote about in their book "The Global Trap", published in 1997.[1][2]

Gorbachev Foundation

Two years earlier, the authors had attended the first State of the World Forum at the Fairmont San Francisco, which was sponsored by the Gorbachev Foundation,[3] and where they heard global business leaders discussing how few workers were actually needed to keep their businesses going.[4]


Tittytainment was a term coined by Zbigniew Brzezinski, the National Security Advisor of US president Jimmy Carter, essentially to convey the idea that a mixture of “intoxicating entertainment and sufficient nourishment” can “tranquilise the frustrated minds of the globe’s population." Martin and Schumann's book describes the expression thus:

The pragmatists in the Fairmont Hotel reduce the future to a pair of numbers and a term: “20 to 80 society” and “tittytainment”. 20 percent of the working age population will be enough in the coming century to keep the world economy going. “More workers will not be needed”, said magnate Washington SyCip.

A fifth of all jobseekers will be enough to produce all the goods and perform all the top-flight services that the world society can afford…. What about the others? Will 80 percent of those willing to work be without a job? “Certainly”… The question in the future will be “to have lunch or be lunch”, to eat or be devoured. ….

The term “tittytainment” makes the rounds… The frustrated population of the world could be kept happy with a mixture of numbing entertainment and adequate food. The managers soberly discuss the possible doses and reflect how the wealthy fifth can employ the superfluous remnant….

The organisers of the three memorable days in the Fairmont imagined themselves underway to a new civilisation. However, the direction envisaged by the assembled experts from the executive floors and science leads directly back into the pre-modern age… The world model of the future follows the formula 20 to 80.

The one-fifth society is brewing in which the excluded will be immobilised with “tittytainment”.[5]

As streaming services like Netflix for movies and TV series abound, a coming wave of full Robotization would make this 20/80 society a likely future scenario.[6]

Pareto Principle

The Pareto Principle is a rule defining that 20 percent of business activities account for 80 percent of results/revenue.[7]
