Title: The Theory of Cost Sharing
Abstract: This paper investigates efficiency and equitability issues given a cost sharing method f in an economy with a public commodity. We introduce the basic concept of a f-Lindahl equilibrium and study the set of all these particular equilibrium allocations. It then turns out that this set is contained in the core of the economy. Finally, we devise a mechanism to implement f-Lindahl equilibria.
