Richard Feynman on Central Planning

In 1963 he wrote to his wife:
The real question of government versus private enterprise is argued on too philosophical and abstract a basis. Theoretically, planning may be good. But nobody has ever figured out the cause of government stupidity—and until they do (and find the cure), all ideal plans will fall into quicksand.
Not exactly libertarian, but not opposed either.
