Example text

This can be illustrated by Heller and Starrett's example of a common green for grazing sheep. Clearly there is an upper bound on the number of sheep the other person can have grazing. Therefore, it is perfectly possible to have convexity in the production possibilities set even if inaction is usually possible. Finally, the propostion indicates that one should make a distinction between exclusion of an externality and_escape from one. By perfect exclusion I mean A B A B = Y for all x . By perfect escape I mean that that (at zero cost) Y (x ) A B B OG Y (x ) for all x .

This problem disappears if bees can be costlessly excluded from the benefits of apple production. Even in the ubiquitous pollution case the externality arises because large exclusion costs prevent the operation of a market for clean air. A difficulty with the usual definition of externality is the lack of clarity concerning which costs give rise to the phenomenon. Exclusion costs may give rise to a traditional externality. Information costs that have the same effect make a less clear case by some previous treatments.

The usual notation fails to distinguish between accidents and deliberate actions, as Mishan notes [4, p. 2 ] . Externalities as a concept are devoid absolutely of any policy implications per se. They exist because of costs. The case in which a divergence between private and social costs may be said to exist is when one knows some method by which improvements could be brought about. Thus much of the traditional literature is logically forced into defining externalities as goods not produced (or bads produced) by reason of high transaction costs, for which a worthwhile method, now known but as yet unapplied, nevertheless exists for their production (or elimination).
