    Nobody. The economy is far too complex to be planned.

    The thing is "running smoothly" is a euphemism for "always growing" and though there may be a good gardener in the group, they're not god.

    I do not think any one group can ensure a smooth economy. Balance, fairness, and the proper structures are important. All of the above must contribute and have some hand in the system to work most effectively. The problem with the economy currently is that only a few are making the most decisions and this has led to unbalance and unrest in the system.

    None of the above. It's too complex.

    Nobody in Washington, that much I know...not Obama, not the Fed, and not Congress. Wall Street knows its business, but its business isn't a snapshot of the US economy. Average Americans are too average.

    economists
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
