"When I envision Spontaneous Order, I usually think of a large department store on Christmas Eve. If I could hover above the fray and acquire a God-like perspective, my first impression would be of frantic or exhausted people jostling each other and rushing from the toy section to the perfume counter. It would look like anarchy in the bad sense. What I would actually be witnessing is a sophisticated example of Spontaneous Order in which all parties achieve their goals without co-ordinating with each other." (03/08/12)
