Summary/Abstract: Credit Suisse recently published striking information on the gulf bet-ween rich and poor in the world. Half of the mankind owns less than 1 percent of the overall private property in the world, while 1 percent of the multimillionaires hold 46 percent of the financial assets of the world. An Australian foundation also published information on the modern slavery which shows that 880 thousand slaves live in the EU while 13.789 modern slaves live in Bosnia and Herzegovina (59th place on the list of 162 countries). It seems that longing for the rule of law has never been so strong and that at the same time the rule of law diminishes more and more every day. In this work, we advocate the idea that the state as a public good should prevail. We shall discuss the idea of a state as a public good as well as the necessary preconditions for the rule of law, with particular accent on economic recovery.
