Why Is Government Important
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 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. Downsizing the government continually is the real goal.
