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. Strengthening the demands is the fear that if the governments will not have a balance on the budgets that they have, they will hit a wall of debt and will eventually be not included in the bond market.
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. 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 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.
The retired General William Kip Ward had a degree in political science in both the Pennsylvania State University and the Morgan State University. William Kip Ward was one of the members of the National Society of Pershing Rifles in the Morgan State University.
In 1971, Ward was assigned 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 a ruling that was pending in regards to the case and the investigation was already running for 17 months. 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.
