  • Fiseha Letta Yemen Course Module: Budgetary policy Course Topic: Budgetary policy Comment: In my opinion the role of government as enforcer of rule of law should be seen as part of the market system. I don't believe the government should be given the power to intervene in the market as a resource allocator. The role of the government should be limited and in all cases should be mandated for a specific purpose and specific time frame as the need may arise. The government should be forbidden by low to intervene in the distribution or redistribution of income. Creation of wealth is not the same as provision of opportunities. Government policy if mandated may help in bringing about and sustaining equitable opportunities for the society at large. However creation of wealth is a realm of productive engagement from which the government must be excluded and the citizenry are given the free access and promotion within the limits of the rule of law. Therefore I have got more questions than answers when I read this course. I don't have as much questions on external stability as that of internal. Internal is a collective action of the citizens. However external stability should be preserved and enforced by a sovereign government than by a sovereign individual. The reason being the sovereign individual while able to respect and promote national stability does not have a complete legal and social mandate to act on behalf of the whole nation. Therefore the protection and promotion of national stability needs careful review at national level and its promotion and protection can only be mandated to the national government (party in power). Well, still needs to be monitored by able individuals and institutions of the nation. See! I'm more influenced by libertarian ideals and therefore am struggling with the idea of giving the government the role of actively engaging the citizenry for creation and distribution of wealth. 2013-06-07 12:06:59
