There are two ways to protect your car from theft. The "club" makes it difficult for a car thief to take your car. Lojack makes it easier for the police to catch the car thief who has stolen it. Which of these types of protection conveys a negative externality on other car owners ? Which one conveys a positive externality? Are there any policy implications in your analysis ?
