Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
building an economy of laywers, bankers, accountants and journalists.

The Ministry of the Plan is getting larger and larger.

All those profession are interested in planning, allocating resources, selling the  current set-up... Not actually producing "stuff" or even useful services.

But they said that bureaucracy is overblown in state-centralised planning, that it can't happen in a neoliberal utopia.

Obviously false. And as in any hierarchical system, those doing the organizing keep a growing part of the resources for themselves. Parasites.

And they have the nerve to wage a war on the unemployed, and the working poor...
