The Value Of Government
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 we many people saw during the 1990s, when a lot of governments begin to make surpluses for their budget, what the critics of these governments did was to demand a reduction and cuts on the taxes in the debts that were outstanding. Downsizing the government continually 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 prior to that was the Deputy Commander of the US European Command. 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. With the rank of lieutenant general on November 2012, William Kip Ward finally retired.
The retired General William Kip Ward had a degree in political science in both the Pennsylvania State University and the Morgan State University. While William Kip Ward was in Morgan State University, he became a member of the National Society of Pershing Rifles.
During the year 1971, Ward was authorized to the infantry. 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. He then gave his command on the African Command 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. There was already a pending ruling on the case and the investigation was already running for 17 months. There were a lot of allegations that when Ward was the head of Africa Command, he would let any unauthorized people, which includes his family, to use government planes, and spend a lot of amount on transportation and hotel rooms. Ward spent a big amount of taxpayer money on a particular trip according to a report from the Pentagon.
