Russia has no plans to super-size its bureaucracy. As a matter of fact, they plan to layoff over 10% of the public servants workforce.
ITAR-TASS reports that, "Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has instructed the Finance Ministry to prepare and submit proposals by July 1, 2014 to lay off 10% of public servants, said the government official website which posted Medvedev’s instructions upon results of his annual report on government’s working results in 2013 at the State Duma."
Meanwhile, President Barry Obama is expanding the size of the US federal government workforce.
According to ITAR-TASS, "The prime minister delivered the annual government report on April 22. The premier stated particularly to ponder another 10% cuts of public servants in regions and at the federal level, because Russia needs “a modern, compact and effective state personnel oriented at people’s requests.”
Australia has recently announced cutbacks on big government spending as well.
