Sammanfattning (abstract):
Public goods have become widely discussed in policy circles during the last five to ten years. The concept originates from economic theory and traditionally refers to a national economic system where it constitutes the essence of nation-building, particularly the modern welfare State. In contrast, the current interest in transnational public goods is a consequence of the erosion of national sovereignty, territoriality and authority in the context of globalization. The discussion has thus moved from national economy into a transnational and globalized world, which is partly the reason why it has become so complex. This raises the difficult question of how public goods can be financed, produced and distributed on the global and regional levels where they are badly undersupplied. We need to transcend the dominating notion in the field that emphasizes the competition between different types of public goods and instead move towards complementarity between global and regional public goods.
