We study three different models in which public goods are supplied by private contributions. In one of these models, tax-financed government subsidies to private contributions will definitely increase the equilibrium supply of public goods. In the other two models, government subsidies are neutralized by offsetting changes in private contributions.

The non-rival nature of consumption provides a strong case for the government rather than the market to provide and pay for public goods.; Many public goods are provided more or less free at the point of use and then paid for out of general taxation or another general form of charge such as a licence fee.; State provision may help to prevent the under-provision and under-consumption of public.

Because private firms can’t make a profit producing public goods, you typically need governments to provide them. Governments can force people to pay for public goods. They do this by levying taxes and using the tax revenues to pay for public goods, such as national defense, police departments, lighthouses, public fireworks displays, basic scientific research, and so on.
