Hovav deals mainly in economies with public goods, as a platform through which to examine the relationships between cooperative solutions and noncooperative solutions. During his research he found out some very interesting phenomena:
1. The existence of rich traders in the market can help the small traders, compared to a situation where there is no large traders.
2. You can get better results in cooperative economies compared to the results of noncooperative economies.
He tries to extend these results to situations in which information is asymmetric.
