Abstract Abstract: To solve problems of compliance, an institutional trigger mechanism is often used. This paper develops a model of two trigger mechanisms and derives conditions where the two institutions may complement one another to improve utility and com-pliance. When the conditions for optimality do not hold, small changes in institutional structure may create lumpy changes in behavior. Also, the paper explores the con-sequences of politically-determined institutions. The paper illustrates the model with applications to administrative theory, common pool resource problems, and federalism. 1You are reading work in progress. I’d love feedback.
