Jane Jacobs on urban planners

“They are all in the same stage of elaborately learned superstition as medical science was early in the last century… As in the pseudoscience of bloodletting, just so in the pseudoscience of city rebuilding and planning, years of learning and a plethora of subtle dogma have arisen on a foundation of nonsense.”

Exactly the same could be said of much of today’s contemporary ‘management science’.
