Ah Yes CCP Central planning !
that sparrow story is simultaneously hilarious and horrifying.

so they're good at planning, and at carrying out the plan, but not necessarily good at choosing what to plan.

they will spend a LOT of money, buy a LOT resources, put a LOT of people to work, and use these resources for SOMETHING. to what extent those somethings will ultimately be useful or productive remains a question. in the meantime i'm investing in energy, copper, etc.
