The final outcome pursued by the state is the welfare of its citizens. Eventually, the way this goal is achieved as well as the perception the society has regarding the way the state performs is a matter of choice the state makes in order to fulfill its tasks. Traditionally, the main roles assumed by the state are: the distributive role, the regulation role, the stabilising and the assurance role.
