A minimalist role is the general desire of economists for governments. You should not be surprised to see a lot of calls for governments to take extreme actions to destroy the deficits in their budget the sooner the better even if the body of the economic recession that is happening around the world is still warm. Buttressing the demands is a threat that if the governments will not balance the budgets that they have, they will eventually hit a wall of debt and will eventually be not included in the bond markets.
But as what was seen during the 1990s when a lot of governments created surplus on their budgets, the critics of the government will only result in demanding cuts and reductions on the taxes in the debts that are 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. William E. Ward was the Deputy Commander of the US European Command before that. General William Ward returned to his old rank which was a major general and he became the special assistant of the vice chief of staff of the Army after the conclusion of the Department of Defense that Kip Ward was using the money of the taxpayers when he left the US Africa Command. William Kip Ward then retired in November 2012 with the rank of a lieutenant general.
In both the Pennsylvania State University and the Morgan State University, the retired General William Kip Ward had a degree in political science. While William Kip Ward was in Morgan State University, he became a member of the National Society of Pershing Rifles.
Ward was then authorized to the infantry during the year 1971. A number of tours overseas in a number of different countries and a number of various assignments in the United States are included in the military service of William Ward. His African Command was renounced to General Carter F. Ham.
Even if there was a retirement ceremony that happened on April of 2011, Ward still was on active duty with a pending special Army investigation made by the Department of Defense of the United States. The investigation was already running for 17 months already and there was a ruling that was pending regarding the case. When Ward was still the head of Africa Command, there were a lot of allegations stating that he would allow his family and other unauthorized people to use the government planes, and spend a lot of money on transportation, hotel rooms, and other types of expenses. According to a report from the Pentagon, on a particular trip Ward was spending a huge amount of taxpayer money.
