    Which one is better in leading a country; an academician, politician, or a military officer ?

    The presidents, kings, queens, or the prime ministers who lead their countries in the world came from various backgrounds; some of them came from academic career (having sufficient study at colleges),  military, politician, as well as the other ones like entrepreneur, technicians, and so forth. Learning from the history, who are among the backgrounds who managed to bring their country into the prosperous one in the world ?

    I can only speak for the history of the United States. Generally, I feel it helps for a head of state within a republic to have experience in multiple fields; mostly business and law. A politician should study war, but not necessaily be a warrior.Traditionally, our Stratarch presidents have been disasters. Though a dozen or so US presidents have been generals, we have had a total of only three professional soldiers with no political experience become president. Out of these, the first two had no idea what they were doing. The third president used militarism as his only foreign policy tool. Generals are simply too vain, too self-assured, and too ignorant to do us any good. Professional politicians can be good as long as they understand law, economics, Washington politics, history, and are free to make their own decisions. The problem is that ambitious middle class politicians without money will do anything to get elected. Ambitious wealthy people with their own money are not electable in today's political climate. Academics make good staffers and cabinet members, but they lack the political experience necessary to accomplish legislative goals. Our most academic president of all was a warmonger and a tyrant.

    It all depend on the country in question, there are number of question needed to be address, before answering this one., the history of the countries, the people and it policies,
    these are the most focus point, in determine who is better at running a country. and most of all "how civilise is the people, and another point how educated is the  citizens.  So it all depends on those things.

    good question by the way

    I would say it depends more on the person than their career background.

    How about a Slave?  or Common Man or Woman?  It seems to me those with great amounts of Education, Political Know How, and Military Savy; lack the one attribute the common person has who has to live by his or her wits, and that's Common Sense!

    I'd take a Slave like Joesph, who became 2nd in command of Egypt.
    I'd take a Shepard like David, who became King of Israel
    I'd take a Woodsman like Abraham Lincoln, who was President

    Acamedicians can make the best of country rulers as they have lesser chances of acquiring the dictator's role. Also, they are less likely to succumb to the greed that politicians often succumb to.

    I would pick an academic or researcher who has good communication skills. After all, anyone who has dedicated their lives to learning will have a ton of good ideas for running a country. Plus, a true academic would be well read in more than just his/her field of expertise. The only little bump lies in whether they'd be able to foster enough support to get the ideas off the ground.
