As was the case with the Soviet Union, central planners erred greatly in terms of what society needed. A key point to understand is the idea that economic efficiency occurs "when the cost of producing a given output is as low as possible". Efficiency, economic efficiency, and Pareto efficiency are essentially synonymous: if we are in a position such that a person cannot be made better off without making someone else worse off, then this position is efficient.
