Abstract [en]

This paper studies the provision of a public good from three points of view: (i) The maximum level of production of the public good consistent with a Pareto optimum, (ii) The level of production of the good maximizing a social welfare function, and (iii) The level of production of the public good that will be the result of a democratic system with majority voting. The paper analyzes how these three levels of production differ from each other.
