Examines the theoretical aspects of extending Samuelson's statist model of public goods provision into a global context, and what theoretical adjustments might be necessary. The most problematic part of extension involves the desirability of global production efficiency and the separation of equity and efficiency conditions, which play an important role in Samuelson's formulation.
