    Other papers in which Tiebout-style locational choice has been applied to the issue of selection of mechanisms include Caplin and Nalebuff ( Caplin and Nalebuff, ) who examine existence issues in a rich class of static models in which communities may be differentiated by the social welfare function used to determine policy outcomes, and Cited by: Tiebout's () hypothesis is that local pub-lic goods might be efficiently allocated if agents can freely choose among alternative ju-risdictions actively seeking citizens. The Tiebout hypothesis has been investigated in depth both theoretically and empirically. The theoretical literature has uncovered some problems with Tiebout's argument, and.

The service bundles of metropolitan communities are. The Tiebout Hypothesis asserts that, in economic situations where it is optimal to have many jurisdictions offering competing packages of public goods, the movement of consumers to jurisdictions where their wants are best satisfied and competition between jurisdictions for residents will lead to near-optimal, “market-like” outcomes.

in a Model of Residential and Political Choice In the present paper we revisit Tiebout’s hypothesis in a multi-community model of (majority rule) that determine political outcomes. Westhoff () constructs a model with a pure public good financed by.

Tiebout first proposed the model informally as a graduate student in a seminar with Richard Musgrave, who argued that the free rider problem necessarily required a political solution. Later, after obtaining his PhD, Tiebout fully described his hypothesis in a seminal article published in by the Journal of Political Economy.

Tiebout (J Polit Econ –, ) argued that efficient local public good provision would emerge as households choose among communities offering different local public goods bundles.

This article highlights research linking the Tiebout hypothesis to real-world local political jurisdictions, Author: Dennis Epple. This has come to be known as the ‘Tiebout hypothesis’ and the related Tiebout community- choice mechanism has been dubbed ‘voting with your feet’.

The Tiebout Hypothesis. The political theory model by Charles Tiebout that, under ideal circumstances, people will reveal their preferences for municipal public goods by ‘voting with their feet’.

(Tiebout, Charles () "A Pure Theory of Local Expenditures," The Journal of Political Economy. tiebout hypothesis: The notion that people relocate from one political jurisdiction to another in search of a more preferred package of government taxes and spending. Named after economist Charles Tiebout, this hypothesis suggests that people "shop" for compatible government activity in the same way they might shop for a car, a house, or a flavor of ice cream.

Just as investors want the companies they hold equity in to do well, homeowners have a financial interest in the success of their communities.

If neighborhood schools are good, if property taxes and crime rates are low, then the value of the homeowner's principal asset--his home--will rise. Thus, as William Fischel shows, homeowners become watchful citizens of local government, not merely to 2/5(1).

1 Local Public Goods and Tiebout’s Idea • The under-provision of public goods problem we discussed so far is mainly due to the fact that the government can not elicit the citizens’ (voters’) preferences truthfully. • Local public goods are public goods that can be enjoyed only by residents in the local community:File Size: 91KB.

We introduce a model of an local public goods economy with a continuum of agents and jurisdictions with finite population.

Under an especially mild condition of boundedness of per capita payoffs we show nonemptiness of the core of the economy. We then demonstrate that the equal treatment core coincides with the set of competitive allocations.PART II MAJORITY RULE 9.
