Central planners can't plan shit - almost literally (quote)

We're naturally inclined to consider these scavengers tragic figures, and to fulminate against a system that allowed so many thousands to eke out a living by foraging through human waste. In many ways, this the correct response. But such social outrage should be accompanied by a measure of wonder and respect: without any central planner coordinating their actions, with any education at all, this itinerant underclass managed to conjure up an entire system for processing and sorting the waste generated by two million people.

From p.4 of Steven Johnson's 'The Ghost Map'.
