Abstract

The recent surge in the appointments of technocrats to the top economic portfolios of finance, and even the formation of fully technocratic governments in Europe raises questions regarding the role of technocrats and technocratic governments in economic policy in democracies. Who are the technocrats? Why are they appointed in the first place? What is their impact on economic policy and finally what their sources of policy influence?
