Session 6H:
The Paradox of Planning
Chair: Jack SOMMER, Univ. N. Carolina, Charlotte, USA

Description: As individuals we make plans based on our conjectures about the future, so what is problematical or paradoxical about the planning we hear so much about at our regional science meetings and in our discussions of expert services we provide to government agencies? The panelists will discuss planning from several different perspectives: the Hayekian “knowledge problem,” the public choice perspectives of Buchanan and others; Austrian School and other radical subjectivist interpretations, and conundrums following from the complex systems discussions of Prigogine.

Panelists
Robert FORMAINI, Dallas Federal Reserve Bank, USA
Sam STALEY, Buckeye Institute for Public Policy Research, Dayton, OH, USA
