The general desire of economist is a minimalist part for governments. 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. The fear that the government will be in a great debt and will be totally out of the bond market if they will not have a balance on the budget that they have, and this is the cause of strengthening the demands.
