Description Economy is important to run life as well as government. In other words, betterment of any individual as well a country depends on economy. ‘Avvaiyaar’ a Tamil poetess said ‘when the conditions of the citizens raise automatically the status of the king raises.’  ‘ThirukkuRaL’ in one of its chapters on ‘poruL syal vahai’ (means of economy) talks about the various ways through which the government can build its economy through righteous means. The other epic literatures too have the same opinion. Man acts unethical in two conditions. One is poverty and the other is the desire for more wealth. Poverty is one of the factors of inequalities in economy.  There are two status which encouragement to earn. One is poverty and the other is the unfulfilled desire for wealth. To fulfil either one, man tries to earn in unethical ways. Poor, because of their need, try unethical and theft is the foremost.
