Economic Planning Works

In this episode Justin takes us through the book, The People’s Republic of Walmart, and the concept of a planned economy as well as planning in other areas of society as well. The People’s Republic of Walmart was written by Leigh Phillips and Michal Rozworski and uses Walmart as an example of how despite the rhetoric of pure unplanned free markets capitalism is actually very planned and society could plan for socialist reasons as well.
