“The main problem with central planning is that a great many dispersed individuals have local knowledge that cannot be collected and processed even by the most noble, intelligent, and hard-working planner.

If you’re objecting to my spending of the public money, you’re harming the people I say I intended to help.” ~ Joakim Book
