Collected together in this special issue of the Journal of Libertarian Studies is an apparently quite disparate group of articles on central economic planning, covering some theoretical disputes concerning it as well as some historical instances of attempts to put it into practice. These articles were written independently of one another, yet there runs throughout a single coherent theme: that the notion of planning an entire economy from the center is an utter sham both theoretically and practically.
