This chapter explores the weakest links of public goods. Public goods can only be supplied if every country unites. Some countries are capable of helping while others are not. Each country, however may lose individually by contributing to such an effort since each country can realize just a fraction of the benefits of providing these global public goods. Whether the supply of weakest link global public goods succeeds or fails depends on the country that does the least.
