Abstract: In this paper the authors highlight the existing dilemma in society regarding entropy and negentropy. The authors start from the idea that entropy being a natural law, it cannot be cancelled but only managed. Here comes the conclusion that for all types of systems: social, computer, urban, the entropy state that characterizes them, can have, to some extent, both advantages and disadvantages. The existing dilemma in society regarding entropy and negentropy involves the individual, meant to rationally manage a number of aspects not only social, computer, urban etc., action that leads not only to gain advantages but sometimes also disadvantages. By knowing everytime the certainties and uncertainties about development, we will be able to take the necessary measures to reduce uncertainty. This paper is a continuation of entropic and negentropic research of the authors from the living world to the economics.
