The non-rival nature of consumption provides a strong case for the government rather than the market to provide and pay for public goods.; Many public goods are provided more or less free at the point of use and then paid for out of general taxation or another general form of charge such as a licence fee.; State provision may help to prevent the under-provision and under-consumption of public.
