Title:On the private provision of contentious public characteristics PDF Logo
Authors:Cornes, Richard

Issue Date:2012
Series/Report no.:CESifo Working Paper: Public Finance 3881
Abstract:We extend the standard public good provision model to allow players to either like or dislike the public characteristic. Those who dislike it are able to take actions to reduce its level. We present conditions under which the existence of a unique noncooperative equilibrium is retained, and analyze its normative and comparative static properties.
