Since other actors are also involved in delivering these components, the question is whether it is possible to discern any specificity of the state’s role in public good provision. It seems that the state’s role differs from that of other actors in at least four important respects. Public goods: a positive analysis 27 First, the state typically supports a diverse range of public goods. At least in democratic nations, the state is the institution expected to facilitate – through electoral and legislative processes – an aggregation of social preferences (in whatever imperfect way), including a bundling of the preferences of different population groups for various public goods.

Because governments may also fail, it is important to justify and design carefully their intervention in the economy. As Sandmo (2002) notes, however, economists and policy makers have often taken this task all too lightly. In recent decades, civil society has emerged as a powerful watchdog of consumers, private corporations and states. Men and women in fur coats are being frowned upon by the general public and pressured into not supporting the killing of animals for fashion purposes. Consumer groups boycott goods they consider to contain such public ‘bads’ as exploitation of child or prison labour, disrespect for workers’ rights and unfair wages, or chemicals harmful to the environment or human health.

Two main patterns of publicness by design can be distinguished. The first pattern can be termed ‘rollout’. It aims at promoting broad-based consumption of such intangibles as norms and rights. It is thus associated with the sort of goods listed in quadrant 2b: non-rivalrous goods made or kept public in consumption. The more people consume these goods, the more useful they are to their existing consumers. For example, the more people accept, that is, consume, a certain norm, the more established and reliable it becomes.
