"One of the rather annoying memes running around is that certain of the East Asian tigers managed to grow their economies through the use of planning rather than markets: thus we too should have more planning and less markets. My own opinion of this idea is that it's nonsense in our own situation: lovely people though both may be neither Ed Balls nor George Osborne strike me as competent to decide whether a computer company should go here or there, nor whether there should be a new computer company: not even whether computers should be new or not."
