Local public goods and private suppliers: Musical suburbs replayed Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper deals with the existence of private market suppliers in a standard local public goods model. The result of this modification can be a cycling process instigated by rich households rather than poor households. The theoretical model provides empirical implications for capitalization studies and policy implications for the provision and financing of local public goods including education. 1986.
