What are real life examples are related? What are the characteristics of a public good? Give an example (if not perfect, then explain why not a perfect example). What is a “pure” public good?

Be prepared to apply these to a policy area. What types of government did the founders have before and immediately after The Declaration of Independence? What was government like under the Articles? What were the problems under the Articles of Confederation? How did the founders attempt to solve these problems with The Constitution? Be specific.
