Abstract

In this paper, we disassemble community mutual aid into two components: providing local public goods and everyday associations with neighbors. If the OFT (Out-For-Tat) strategy is taken, and the benefit of everyday associations with neighbors exceeds the cost, cooperation was demonstrated not only in associations in everyday life but through providing local public goods. To fulfill this condition, it is necessary to lower the participation fees in associations with neighbors, and for all the members to choose the local public goods that receive the benefit. When using ICT (Information Communication Technology) especially, cost cutting for associations with neighbors is expected.
