Provision of a pure local public good in a spatial model with many jurisdictions
This paper examines the provision of a pure local public good in jurisdictions that are spaced evenly along an infinite line. Each jurisdiction either supplies the local public good, or else its residents travel to another jurisdiction to consume the local public good. The equilibrium spacing between jurisdictions which supply the local public good, which can be uneven (varying between a minimum spacing and a maximum spacing for given exogenous parameters), can be greater than, equal to, or less than the socially optimal spacing.
