Abstract: Two agents make a trade-off between production and safety investment, fighting for joint production. Ceteris paribus, if agent 1 has a higher unit cost of production, lower emphasis on safety causes more fighting and higher utility for agent 1, and less production and safety effort by agent 1.


Keywords: production; safety investment; fighting; risk; economics; productive investment.
