Technocracy, the politico-economic movement, advocates the optimization of the welfare of human beings, by means of scientific analyses and engineered action. It does not limit itself to established economic, political and administrative forms, but considers those as human artifacts subject to optimization. As a result, the group's reforms seem quite radical to many people.
Technocracy advocates an economic system in which production is run at full capacity at all times, and purchasing power equal to the productive capacity is evenly distributed to all. The organization claims that this will guarantee both well-being and security for all.
A government or social system controlled by technicians, especially scientists and technical experts.
No country has ever been a true Technocracy, this is a hypothetical type of government.
The ideal government where the best in all areas rule, instead of one man that doesn't know shit and will most likely make it worse for the country, which obviously isn't so good.
Omg, technocracy is teh pwnz0r.
A form of government where those who are skilled rule.
“Those who are skilled” is often taken to mean scientist and engineers; however, that is not necessarily the case. A technocracy is a hypothetical system of governance where those who are skilled in a particular area make the decisions for that area, so a person who is skilled in the area of health would manage the heath system and someone skilled in defence would make the decisions for the defence of a state rather than having elected representatives make the decisions.
Technocracy can also be seen as a plan for society where the technical aspects of society are run by those who are skilled in those areas. The plan would see the replacement of capitalism, money and the free market with a more rational means of allocating and managing the resources of society to maintain a high standard of living for the longest time possible.
There are no examples of a technocracy.
The new system to replace the current price system.
The main problem is that the price does not reflect the actual cost of the product. It may be higher when the product is scarce, and lower when it's abundant, while the effort of producing it is still the same. That's why technocracy introduces new valuating system which is based on so called energy-credits. The products and services are valued by the amount of energy it takes to create it. That includes the energy used to get raw materials, for manufacturing, transport, distribution and recycling the leftovers. In this case the cost of the product would not fluctuate and decrease when new more energy-efficient methods of manufacturing/transport/recycling methods are implemented.
The first point is that nowadays economy is already obsolete and causes lots of problems. The industry power is such great today, that when it's run on full scale it can produce abundance. But we have warehouses of food destroyed to keep food prices high while there are millions starving.
Another point is that currently industry is so automated, that there is little need for human labour to produce goods. This ends up in unemployment and creating unnecessary jobs, while few enjoy great wealth just because they own the machines.
The main idea of technocracy is:
1) change product and service valuating from price system to energy-accounting
2) calculate the total ammount of energy the country (most likely continent) can get, dedicate...
1. The bureaucratic management of technology.
2. A technology administered by non-qualified staff members.
3. A mis-managed technical program.
4. A secret organization devoted to technical mis-management.
1. The technocracy of the project created cost over runs.
2. The technocracy contributed to the project failures.
3. More technocracy related issues were discovered during the Congressional Hearings.
4. The Technocracy Society of America, met in secret this week to discuss changes to previous changes in the organizations by-laws.
