Public goods

An exception to the free-market system marked by two characteristics. First, if one person consumes 

Public

 goods, the amount available remains the same. Second, once 

Public goods

 are available, no one can be stopped from consuming them for free. An example is the protection provided by police, fire departments, and the military.
