A minimalist part for government is generally the desire of economists. 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. 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 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. 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 was the Deputy Commander of the US European Command before that. After General William Ward left the US Africa Command, Kip Ward returned to his permanent rank as a major general and was the special assistant to the vice chief of staff of the Army it was concluded by the Department Of Defense that he was misusing the moneys from taxpayers. With the rank of lieutenant general on November 2012, William Kip Ward finally retired.

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 renounce his command of the Africa Command to General Carter F. Ham.
While there was a retirement ceremony that happened on April of 2011, Wiliam E. Ward was still on active duty, with a special Army investigation pending from the Inspector General’s Office of 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. 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.
