Government's run by people. In this case, it's the same general crowd as the private sector "Wunderkinder". You put stupid people in, you get stupid results.

That's the thing. It's not the people. It's the whole flawed concept that the economy can be centrally planned and controlled. Unfortunately, people who buy into this flawed concept are naturally drawn to politics. I suspect that this is how it will always be.
