In a holiday-inspired homage to Leonard Read's classic "I, Pencil," this article sketches the complexity behind the supply chain that brings us Thanksgiving dinner. No planner could put such a progression together--much less describe it accurately.

Another demonstration of the miracle of spontaneous order that occurs when people voluntarily cooperate through production and exchange.

Indeed, our founding ancestors learned this the hard way.
