The third part, Chapter 6, offers an example of how heterogeneous players affect institutional choices. If players with various costs in cooperation have the opportunity to select an institution that governs them, will they vote for the most efficient institutions? The answer is that it is much harder for them to vote for an ex-post efficient institution compared to a homogenous group studied in the literature. Driven by self-interest, players vote defensively and attempt to avoid possible punishment that might target at themselves.
