Description :
In Oceania, as well as in developing regions elsewhere, traditional sector activities have positive external effects. They produce a lively culture and a cherished lifestyle which are public goods. Taking into account the positive role of culture in social welfare, one finds that the market equilibrium is not a welfare optimum. Thus, traditional activities should be subsidised to maintain and encourage the positive external effects they have on social welfare.
