I Object!

Who objects to an economy run by selfless technical specialists, guided by incorruptible science, and for the benefit of all?

I do. First, human nature is not reliably selfless. Second, science is not incorruptible. Third, it is impossible to make everyone happy.

What's the alternative? An economy run by no one, guided by the rule of law, and for the benefit of widely different and sometimes contradictory individual preferences.
