Economic Definition of bureaucrat. Defined.

Offline Version: PDF

Term bureaucrat Definition: Someone who works in a bureaucracy. Usually the term bureaucrat is used as a deregulatory, even profane, description of a government employee (such as "that dirty faceless bureaucrat"), indicating that the person would need serious genetic restructuring to be included in the human race. Closer genetic inspection (and the theory of public choice), however, indicates that the real culprit is complex bureaucracies and the rules under which they operate.
