The Value Of Government
A minimalist role is the general desire of economists for governments. It will not be a surprise to see a lot of calls for the governments to make extreme actions to eliminate the deficits in their budget even if the body of the economic recession that is happening globally is still warm. 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 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. The real aim is to down size the governments continually.
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. William Kip Ward then retired in November 2012 with the rank of a lieutenant general.
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.
In 1971, Ward was assigned to the infantry. A lot of number of various assignments in the United States and overseas tours in many different countries around the world 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. 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. On a particular trip, Ward spent a huge amount of taxpayer money and that was according to a report by the Pentagon.
