An apple grower’s orchard provides nectar to a neighbor’s bees, while the beekeeper’s bees help the apple grower by pollinating his apple blossoms.

How might this underallocation get resolved via the means suggested by the Coase theorem?

As a result, they not only recover 90% of LoJack-equipped cars that are stolen but also arrest many auto thieves and shut down many “chop shops” that take apart stolen vehicles to get at their used parts. Thus, LoJack provides both private benefits and positive externalities. Should the government consider subsidizing LoJack purchases?
