The Side Payments Game

The Side Payments Game

(p.335) 13 The Side Payments Game
Environment and Statecraft

Scott Barrett (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the role that compensating payments can play in promoting international cooperation. The theory developed here explains that such payments cannot increase cooperation when countries are alike, but that they can have a huge effect when countries are very different. Side payments can therefore only really help when the conditions allow them to play this role. The theory is again applied to the Montreal Protocol.

Keywords:   asymmetric games, side payments, compensating payments, equilibrium selection, fairness, cost sharing
