In the origin and development of the state, economic necessities have played a very significant role. Gettel says that, “Economic activities, by which the people got the basic amenities, such as food, housing etc. and later on collected property and liquidity, were important factors in the formation of the state.” With the rise of private property, the origin of the state became quite mandatory for its safety.

It is the state which operates the economic system of the society, and in this, necessary needs of the people are taken care of. The state is the only solution to the interest and conflicts of the different classes of the society. For the sake of these interests, the state came into existence. Plato, Hobbes, Locke and Rousseau, etc. also supported this idea.
