Editors’ Introduction The two authors had tried alternative drafts to reach a consensus. While they had no problem in agreeing on Part II, the final version of Part I was mainly drafted by Lipsey, partly based on previous versions, with only minor revisions and additions from Ng. For a main part of the version preferred by Ng, please see section 2 of Ng (2017b). Importantly, the main disagreement over Part I was how to present the reasoning behind the results of first-best and second-best theories, results with which both authors agree. They also wish to acknowledge the research assistance of Zhang Chen 0 0 1 4 1 2 24 40
