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 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.

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. Ward spent a big amount of taxpayer money on a particular trip according to a report from the Pentagon.
