Abstract

The article asserts that the efficiency of a collective action depends on two factors. First, the variation of the congestion cost according to the size and the membership structure defines equilibrium access conditions. Second, individual calculus and optimum perception are influenced by the individual’s ability to regard others as partners. So, we use a model of discriminatory club with “moral ability\" to co-operate. Finally, some unusual club’s shapes are described.
