Estimating the Common Cost of a Good When the Local Costs are Known in the Countries of a Community

In an economic community among many countries, the estimate of the common cost of any good, when the local costs in the countries are known, is of substantial interest also for pure theory. In fact, the classical point of view of the compared costs solves the problem under the hypothesis that the local global costs are linear, which involves that the local costs are independent of the quantity of the good. It is also limited (as far as we know) to the case of only two countries.
