Name of creator
The Technocracy Movement began in 1918-1919 when Howard Scott brought together a group of economists, engineers and scientists for the purposes of creating a research organization. This organization was known as the Technical Alliance throughout the 1920s and the early 1930s. In 1933 the group was incorporated according to New York State laws, and officially became Technocracy Inc., a non-profit, non-political, non-sectarian membership organization. Technocracy Inc. has members and units operating in most American states and Canadian provinces, as well as some members in other areas of the world where North American Armed Forces bases exist. Technocracy is primarily a North American focused organization, and it aims to recreate the continents social and economic systems by imposing a scientific system upon the existing industrial and social structures. One of the key points of Technocracy is the redistribution of wealth through the application of a new method of distributing purchasing power to the population at large, known as the Energy Certificate.
