- The traditional approach to voluntary provision of pure public goods typically models the factors of group heterogeneity and group size in a piecemeal fashion and fails to explain salient empirical observations. Integrating, both factors into a single model, we examine how they interact with each other to determine the structure of Nash equilibrium, and show that this model is indeed useful in making realistic predictions.
