Abstract

In the problem of locating multiple public facilities studied by Barbera and Bevia (2002), we offer simple necessary and sufficient conditions for effciency, decentralizability of efficient decisions in a game of community division and local public goods provision, and a constructive algorithm for efficient and consistent decisions.
