Contests, private provision of public goods and evolutionary stability

Andreas Wagener

Economics Letters, 2016, vol. 138, issue C, 34-37

Abstract: We study evolutionary stability for public goods games incentivized by a contest. In a quasi-linear setting, we derive conditions such that evolutionary stability, Nash equilibrium and efficient solution coincide.
