The Value Of Government
A minimalist part for government is generally the desire of economists. 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. 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 happened during the 1990s when a lot of government begin to generate a surplus on their budget, what the critics of the government did was to demand reduction and cuts on the taxes in the debts that were outstanding. Downsizing the government continually is the real goal.
