Two are better than one!: individuals' contributions to "unpacked" public goods


Bernasconi, Michele; Corazzini, Luca; Kube, Sebastian; Maréchal, Michel (2009). Two are better than one!: individuals' contributions to "unpacked" public goods. Economics Letters, 104(1):31-33.

Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate how "unpacking" provides a possible approach for mitigating the dilemma of public goods provision through private contributions. Subjects' total contributions increase when a single public good is split into two identical public goods.
