Why do people imagine the “free market” can solve social problems?

There is no evidence that the Queen bee is deeply familiar with discrete geometry. There is even less evidence for the worker bees. It is probably safe to say that no bee really sees the mathematical problem at all. The “solution” is not one of a conscious “solver” but of many individual bee actions, by many individual bees, acting on local information and in accordance with their inborn bee behaviors.
