The interaction of the two criteria leads to four categories: (a) public goods that are non-excludable and non-rival, such as national defense and uncongested non-toll roads; (b) private goods that are both excludable and rival, such as personal computers and congested toll roads; (c) common resources that are non-excludable but rival, such as clean air and congested non-toll roads; and (d) natural monopolies that are excludable but non-rival, such as cable TV and uncongested toll roads.

Williams, a missionary to China and a sinologist, was hired by Yale after he returned to the United States in 1876 to continue the teaching and research on the Chinese language (Dong 2002), which also marked the beginning of American sinology (Chen 2007; Mo 2006).
