Pink Slip to Bullshit Jobs and the Gig Economy 1 550x550 3

A charming animated free-market poem by Russ Roberts, on the invisible hand, at http://wonderfulloaf.org
The “read the poem” link includes much interesting annotation.
Mild critique: I would rather the “planner” be a well-meaning economist faced with impossible information problems than a darkly sinister white guy in a suit. It looks like all we need is better  planners. And the bakers seem really happy about all that competition and free entry, whereas real bakers quickly band together to demand regulation, occupational licensing, and other restrictions. But I’m just whining, it’s a good romp through the invisible hand in a mythic war-free and Disney-clean 1940s Europe.
