Abstract

A voluntary contribution process for providing public good finance in a replicating economic environment was studied. Contributions during the first period were on the order of 38 percent of the Lindahl optimum but during later periods contributions decayed to very low levels. Some perturbations of the process involving the announcement of Lindahl prices and the agents' abilities to communicate were also studied.
