Paul, these are excellent questions in my opinion. But I do not have
enough knowledge about the issues to make a good assessment of them. To
me it seems that sophisticated means of macroeconomic accounting would
be important in any form of socialist economy and that advances in
information technology used in firms today could be used for such purposes.

Have you looked into Paul C and Allin's work on planning? Or the work by
Stafford Beer?
