Democratic Corporatism is an economically third position, culturally variable and authoritarian ideology. It was created to demonstrate how a corporatist economy could exist outside of Fascism.
Democratic Corporatism pairs a corporatist economy with a representative democracy in the following ways:
- Trade guilds are formed to represent trade-electorates where people of a certain 'corporation' (corporatist definition) reside.
- Executive trade guild members are offered parliamentary seats according to their trade-electorate's percentage of the total population
- The presidents of trade guilds are elected by the constituents of their trade-electorates.
- A 'President Prime' is elected by these trade guild presidents in an electoral college-style system, with each president's vote weight being proportional to their guild's number of seats.
- The public votes on whether they are satisfied with the presidents' choice. If a majority (>60%) are dissatisfied, the general public elect the President Prime directly instead.
It is common to see one President Prime candidate appeal to the largest trade guild, while others attempt to form coalitions between minority guilds.
- Corporatism - Best economic system.
- Social Corporatism - Hey, why not?
- Democracy - Government for the people, not the other way around.
- Guild Socialism - You recognise the importance of trade guilds in politics, but class collaboration is really not as bad as you think.
- Fascism - You are both the reason people have heard of Corporatism and the reason no one wants it. Thanks for that.
- Capitalism - It is a shame that a titan of industry such as yourself is so ungrateful to the lower sections of your pyramid
- Socialism - Hatred is a poison. Hatred of the bourgeoisie is no exception.
