Planning and economic growth

I agree with Mr Tarin, but not totally. Yes, there is a need of will to do the things with honesty, but the most important of all is to address our structural problems; and in this regard, energy crisis is on the top. We need to address the energy problems as much as early, because today energy is considered to be the life blood of economy without which our economy can not move. Furthermore, in the west, the demand is not that of planning mechanism, as the writer mentions in the article, but that of economic system’s alternative. To demand for a planning mechanism is like asking for another committee, or state department.
