You'll be shocked to learn that economic planning goes on all around you, on a massive scale: Amazon and Walmart are great examples.

On this episode of The Alberta Advantage podcast, the team goes deep into how markets work, the economic calculation debate, the demise of Sears due to cutthroat internal competition, the need to democratize (and not just nationalize!) the corporate planning apparatus, and more.
