ABSTRACT
The author explores a different meaning of technocracy as a blend of bureaucracy and technology in the U.S. He explains that technocracy combines political and monetary agenda in the manipulation of policy and established standards through perceived technological advancements. He has learned that universities are allegedly paid large grants to conduct studies whose proponents had an agenda not to find out the truth but to prove a required conclusion. He criticizes such reports that supposedly intimidate bureaucrats, designers or politicians to make laws.
