along the diminishing returns of social science

Doing social science research in an established discipline such as strategic management, is akin to preparing a feast with the crumbs from an orgy. Before considering some recipe, think of the 5th labor of Hercules, to clean the Augean stables.

Now, that's what I call diminishing returns. As alternative, why can't social scientists open up today's newspaper and think about fixing some wrongs?
