Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
But the alternative of having a state-planned economy isn't an attractive solution either.

Modern "market" economies are already extensively planned by the private governments of large corporations. The state does not introduce planning into an unplanned economy - it redirects the planning towards ends that serve a different (and hopefully more democratically accountable) constituency than the existing corporate governments.
