As Ive explained before, MS coops tend not to take on more workers than
necessary, since that would mean a lower per person share of profits. The
point is that labor is not a cost, and this creates a different dynamic.

Anyway, do we want planned enterprises to be larger than they would have
to be to be efficient? Isn't that wasteful?
