Opinion | I Was Once a Socialist. Then I Saw How It Worked. - The New York Times

It doesn’t matter how big your computers are, the socialist can never gather all relevant data, can never construct the right feedback loops. The state cannot even see the local, irregular, context-driven factors that can have exponential effects. The state cannot predict people’s desires, which sometimes change on a whim. Capitalism creates a relentless learning system. Socialism doesn’t.


Sounds like a plan, Dave, I say let's give capitalism a try.
