Economics Letters, 2012, vol. 117, issue 2, 397-400

Abstract: With nondistortionary user charges, the first best and second best of a single-club-exogenous-income economy with identical individuals coincide. They differ if incomes differ. Overprovision of a superior club good then occurs in the Second Best.
