Per "The Encyclopedia Brittanica", Pareto, " …laid the foundation of modern welfare economics… [Then later] Believing that there were problems that economics could not solve, Pareto turned to Sociology, writing what he considered his greatest work…Because of his theory of the superiority of the elite, Pareto sometimes has been associated with fascism. His concept of society as a social system had a strong impact on the development of sociology and theories of social action in the United States after World War II."
