The deviations from great prices in the market are responsible for poor allocation of resources: this failure in terms of allocative efficiency can justify a State intervention in the economy. Sometimes it was noted that public intervention is more expensive than market failure: in other words can fail the market, but can fail even public intervention.

Keywords: market failure, State intervention
