Types of government


Technocracy ("techno" from the Greek tekhne for skill, "cracy" from the Greek kratos for "power") is a form of government in which engineers, scientists, health professionals, and other technical experts are in control of decision making in their respective fields. Thus the term technocracy denotes a system of government where those who have knowledge, expertise or skills compose the governing body. In a technocracy decision makers would be selected based upon how highly knowledgeable they are, rather than how much political capital they hold.
