The price function.. a free market already serves that purpose, and has the added benefit of not having to guess which resources are important to certain people. Computers would have to assume all humans need each resource equally, and make calculations based on that. Humans are different, and can make decisions in a free market based on what they personally feel is important. If the resource is scarce, the high price makes it less important to those who can't afford it.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
