Abstract: From p. 4: "In the analysis that follows, we consider the CPR to be community pasture land where community members choose the optimal number of animals to stock. This allows us to use a linear-quadratic specification of the production function that has been widely used in studies of livestock weight gain. In section 2, we develop the model of costly cooperation when community members are identical. We then consider in section 3 the case where heterogeneity comes from differential production costs across members. In section 4 heterogeneity results from differential constraints on capacity to stock animals. Section concludes with a discussion of some policy implications of the model."
