Summary/Abstract: The article is an attempt to theoretically derive a concept of politics from the rational choice theory. It claims that politics emerges as an interaction that attempts to solve the collective action problem (free riding) by establishing and controlling institutions that allocate and distribute public goods and socially valued resources. the first part (sections 3-6) lays out basic collective action issues that serve to understand the social dilemma (section 7). Section 8 discusses time discounting problem and the social dilemma.
