dirigiste

adjective /dɪɹəˈʒist,dɪɹɪˈʒist/
Controlled or guided by a central authority, as in an economy.

"The repeated crises in dirigiste systems are in essence crises of information since the abolition of the market leaves the central planner bereft of that economic knowledge which is required for harmony."; Norman Barry in The Tradition of Spontaneous Order, Literature of Liberty: A Review of Contemporary Liberal Thought, 5:2;7-58, p. 10, 1982.
