Centralization and Catastrophe

I have read a number of papers by Cass Sunstein, mostly disagreed with his ideas but he had a good paper against the precautionary principle and his work on the availability cascade should serve as warning to some of his own ideas.  In this article the great economist and thinker Thomas Sowell takes on Mr. Sunstein’s love of a benevolent elite.  Well worth the read if you find yourself thinking, we need one more program to control the plebes or the solution is to get the right people to run things.  In my time I have heard people say all those horrible things that happened in the past we know better today. Strange, I have never actually witnessed that.
