Proponent of Small government
Naftali Bennett the leader of Habayit Hayehudi is to head the renamed Economics and Trade Ministry and is to head a special cabinet committee set up to seek ways to reduce the country's cost of living and break up the concentration of economic power in the hands of a few.
The Israeli model is in sharp contrast to the West African state of Sierra Leone where the number of ministers including deputy ministers is almost 60 with the excuse that problems of the country are so many that a small cabinet will be unable to function effectively. A claim that flies in the face of all contemporary economic thought and theory.
In Sierra Leone, not only is economic power concentrated in the hands of a few, but the bloated bureaucracy is so inefficient that even after five years of touting electricity projects as the major achievement of the current government, much of the country remains in darkness.
