The Economic Congress of Advisors was a political body of the Ferengi Alliance which was established by Grand Nagus Zek in 2375 to move the Ferengi into a more democratic age. The Congress had the power to veto any regulation proposed by the Nagus, and they had to ratify it before it became law. By the end of the year, the Congress had made monopolies and the dumping of industrial waste illegal, as well as instituting labor rights for all Ferengi citizens. (DS9 episode: "The Dogs of War")

Thirteen people sat in the Congress. In 2376, Congressman Liph was ejected from the Congress for diverting tax funds to invest in quadrotriticale futures on Sherman's Planet. Liph was replaced by Brunt, who himself was ejected shortly after for forgery of a business contract. (DS9 - Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine novel: Ferenginar: Satisfaction is Not Guaranteed)

In 2382, the Congress of Economic Advisors ratified Rom's proposal for the Ferengi Alliance to join the Khitomer Accords. (ST - Typhon Pact novel: Plagues of Night)

In 2387, Grand Nagus Rom presented the Congress with a proposal for a formal alliance with the United Federation of Planets, which was greatly opposed by many Ferengi. The bill failed to pass Congress when several lawmakers were paid to vote against it. (ST website: The Path to 2409)
