Why Is Government Important
A minimalist role is the general desire of economists for governments. Even if the body of the economic recession that is happening to the world is still warm, it will not be a surprise if there will be a lot of calls for governments to make extreme actions to eliminate the deficits in their budget, the sooner it is, the better. The fear that the government will be in a great debt and will be totally out of the bond market if they will not have a balance on the budget that they have, and this is the cause of strengthening the demands.
But as what happened during the 1990s when a lot of government begin to generate a surplus on their budget, what the critics of the government did was to demand reduction and cuts on the taxes in the debts that were outstanding. To continue down sizing the government is the real goal.
A former USA four star general who recently served as the Commander of the US Africa Command during October 1, 2007 to March 8, 2011 is William E. “Kip” Ward who was born on March 6, 1949. But before that, Wiliam E. Ward was the Deputy Commander of the US European Command. General William Ward returned to being the major general after he left the US Africa Command and was the special assistant of the vice chief of staff of the Army after it was concluded by the Department of Defense that Kip Ward was using the money of the taxpayers. With the rank of lieutenant general on November 2012, William Kip Ward finally retired.
