Abstract:     
Efforts to provide global public goods clash with the challenges of coordinating contributions and distributing costs equitably. In this experimental setting, the researchers distribute endowments unequally among a group of people who can reach a target sum through successive contributions. Results suggest that coordination-promoting institutions and early redistribution are decisive for the avoidance of global calamities.
