 Advancing the Concept of Public Goods

Show Summary Details


Examines the implications of translating the concept of public goods, originally developed in the setting of a domestic national economy, to that of global public goods set within a transnational global economy. This requires important adjustments to the concepts of ‘triangle of publicness’ (publicness of consumption, of benefits, and of decision‐making), as well as new typologies of public goods.

Keywords: global public goods; public goods; triangle of publicness

Chapter.  13582 words.  Illustrated.
