I've heard an anecdote of when Russia was transitioning out of communism. Allegedly they sent diplomats to Britain to study how things are done there, and one of their questions was "Who is the person in charge of making sure enough food gets into London to feed everyone?"

Which of course baffled the Brits; nobody needed to be explicitly in charge of that. Anyone that saw a need could find a way to make a living by plugging the gap. Although the steady progression of business regulation keeps making that more and more difficult...
