Common Property


Students jointly own a common resource and must make consumption decisions over multiple rounds.

    • Here are many variations of this game, generally using different goods as the common resources (e.g., see hereGames Economists Play: Games 71 - 80)
    • For larger classes, can be done with a sub-set of students as a demonstration for the rest of the class. Have students predict what will happen before game begins.
