Abstract: "The Olsonian 'by-product theory' of collective action is re-examined by taking into consideration the indispensability of organizer's works to any collective action. It is derived (i) that business schemes must be undertaken by the leadership of an entrepreneur type of organizer in order to stop the global commons from being degraded, (ii) that under some conditions, social entrepreneur can contribute to financing collective action for the global commons on a more sufficient level than other types of entrepreneurs, and (ii) that the qualifications for the social entrepreneur are, skills on the organizing and managing work and missions to collective interests. A three-stage game in which an 'eco-good' is undertaken by an organizer is presented in order to illustrate the main logic."
