''Investment and the tragedy of the commons''
( 2001, Vol. 4 No.2 )
This note studies the exploitation of a common proerty resource when firms choose a technology before exploiting the resource. The sequential choice leads to overinvestment. Moreover, exploitation levels are higher than they would be if technology and labour input were chosen simultaneously. The tragedy of the commons is aggravated.
