Furthermore, some requests will not require scrip at all because they can potentially be satisfied by other members of the colluding group. When deciding whether the group should satisfy a member’s request or ask for an outside volunteer to fulfill it, the group must decide whether it should pay a cost of α to avoid spending a dollar.

For example, once the colluding group has accumulated a certain amount of money it may wish to have only members with small values of α volunteer to satisfy requests. Or when it is low on money it may wish to deny use of money to members with low values of γ.
