2008 Social Science Research Network  
Finding out what is the right mix of the public inputs, and more importantly, what is a valuable change from the current provision is as complex as determining what is the right mix of private provision  ...  In the latter case, economists agree that this process cannot be achieved through central planning and that the invisible hand of the market is the right approach, because it allows decisions to be made  ...  The real problem for societies is how to organize the provision of an adequate investment climate in each of these areas and this is unfortunately a very high dimensional problem.  ...
