Interjurisdictional Commuting and Local Public Goods


  • Sasaki, Komei


This paper deals with the provision and finance of local public goods, where free riding across communities emanates from interjurisdictional commuting. In a two-city model with inter-city commuting incorporated, the relationship between a market equilibrium and an optimizing solution is investigated. Instruments for achieving Pareto-efficient locations, production, and commuting are proposed.
