The greater the division of labor in an economy, the greater the need for coordination. This is because increased division of labor entails a larger number of specialized producers, which results in a greater burden on managers and, potentially, in a greater number of disruptions of supply and production.

There is always more division of labor in market economies than in planned economies.

If all of the statements above are true, then which of the following must also be true?

(A) Disruptions' of supply and production are more frequent in planned economies than in market economies.
(B) There are more specialized producers in planned economies than in market economies.
(C) The need for coordination in market economies is greater than in planned economies.
(D) A manager's task is easier in a market economy than in a planned economy.
(E) Division of labor functions more effectively in market economies than in planned economies.
