File Name: public goods and publicly provided private goods .zip
In economics , a public good also referred to as a social good or collective good  is a good that is both non-excludable and non-rivalrous. Also, use by one person neither prevents access of other people nor does it reduce availability to others. If too many fish were harvested, the stocks would deplete, limiting the access of fish for others.
Private good , a product or service produced by a privately owned business and purchased to increase the utility , or satisfaction, of the buyer. The majority of the goods and services consumed in a market economy are private goods, and their prices are determined to some degree by the market forces of supply and demand. In practice, private goods exist along a continuum of excludability and rivalry and can even exhibit only one of these characteristics. The absence of excludability and rivalry introduces market failures that ensure that some goods and services cannot be efficiently provided by markets. Public goods, such as streetlights or national defense, exhibit nonexcludable and nonrivalrous characteristics.

The two-type model of non-linear income taxation with asymmetric information on individual ability levels is extended to discuss welfare effects of two policy instruments: a pure public good and a publicly provided private good. This latter is interpreted as health care.
The basic result of this paper is that when government provides either public goods, private goods with externalities, or transfers motivated by altruism, public provision is large enough to completely crowd out private provision. In contrast, when government provides private goods, public provision redistributes resources without completely crowding out private provision. Thus the coexistence of public and private provision indicates a private good; public provision that completely crowds out private provision indicates a public good or the presence of externalities.

We analyse the political economy of the public provision of private goods when individuals care about their social status. Status concerns motivate richer individuals to vote for the public provision of goods they themselves buy in markets: a higher provision level attracts more individuals to the public sector, enhancing the social exclusivity of market purchases.
