Four roommates are thinking about hiring a $100 / week cleaning service. The roommates value this weekly service differently as follows:
- Josh values it at $20
- Joaquim values it at $40
- X Æ A-12 values it at $30
- Apple values it as $20
Once the good (a clean apartment) is provided, there is no way to prevent one roommate from benefing (non-excludable) and the fact that it is clean for one person does not diminish it for others (non-rival) .
Based on this on this set-up, discuss the following questions:
Should it by provided? What is your criteria?
Will it by provided? (There is no one correct answer here… just think through different scenarios)
