    Technocracy is an economically and culturally variable anti-democratic ideology who supports a system of governance in which decision-makers within the area are selected on the basis of their expertise in a given area of responsibility, particularly with regard to scientific or technical knowledge, and supports the formation of a government of scientists, engineers, urban planners etc. The term can also sometimes be used to describe the idea of approaching social and economical problems through the lens of sustainability and the scientific method as opposed to the pursuit of monetary profit. Sometimes, Technocracy can advocate for economic planning, although this is not always the case.

    History

    The Technocratic movement originated in the Cball-US.png United States during the Great Depression. The Technocratic Movement proposed radical reforms at it's time like replacing the government with unelected experts and a 16 hour workweek. The movement gained a lot of support as Americans were struggling during the Great Depression, but it eventually lost support as FDR signed reforms to the American Economic system and it now has a small and fringe support in the United States

    Examples of Technocracy has occurred in other countries before, mostly in Europe; They practiced Technocracy in general and they were usually implemented during political crisis and would usually not last long. Cball-Italy.png Italy currently has a Technocrat for prime minister after a political crisis resulting in the former prime minister withdrawing from the ruling coalition and thus stepping down as prime minister.
