Surprisingly, it is possible to push this extensive literature further with the addition of one tool, formal theory. A formal model simply converts the core of a verbal argument into mathematical terms and then uses mathematics instead of verbal reasoning to derive additional propositions. It may seem unlikely at first that a formal model can yield much additional insight, since the nonformalliterature has long been built on Mancur Olson's (1965/1971) formal model of collective-goods provision.
