This state-of-the art collection of papers analyses various aspects of the theory of externalities and public goods. The contributions employ new analytical techniques like the aggregative game approach, and discuss the philosophical underpinnings of the theory. Furthermore, they highlight a range of topical empirical applications including climate policy and counterterrorism. This contributed volume was written in memory of Richard C. Cornes, a pioneer in the theory of externalities and public goods.

Author Biography

Wolfgang Buchholz has studied Mathematics, Economics and Political Science at the Universities of Freiburg and Tubingen, where he got his Ph.D. in Economics in 1982 and finished his Habilitation in 1987. In 1988 he became an associate professor of economics at the University of Regensburg. After an interplay as a professor at the newly founded European University in Frankfurt (Oder) between 1992 and 1996 he returned to Regensburg - now as a full professor of pubic economics. His main fields of research are international environmental economics, the theory of public goods, intertemporal evaluation and discounting, social protection and distribution policy and the links between economics and ethics. Dirk T.G. Rubbelke is Professor of Economics at Technische Universitat Bergakademie Freiberg.

He is also Research Associate at the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW), Mannheim and Fellow Member in the CESifo Research Network, Munich. Prof. Rubbelke did research and taught at internationally renowned universities and research centres.
