AbstractAs a sequel to a critical discussion of the debate on the question of public goods in connection with Coase's historical analysis of the lighthouses in Britain (published in TPR 79.4), this case study concerns the provision of a Chinese lighthouse, Gap Rock Light, by a British Crown Colony, Hong Kong. The study is informed by the precise meanings of key economic concepts of public goods and a free market, the reality of levying light dues on the basis of tonnage, and the changing nature of the lighthouse due to technological advances in shipping.
