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. 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. Downsizing the government continually is the real goal.
