A game-theoretic model is used to asses the impact of changing disutility of labour and distribution schemes on labour supply in Chinese agricultural product teams. It is argued that a previous analysis of the problem by chinn (1980) overlooks some inherent complications. It is shown that application of the symmetric, pure strategy Nash equilibrium concept yields no equilibria over a significant range of values for relevant variables. Asymmetric, pure strategy equilibria are shown to exist over this range. Allowing production teams continuous choice of labour inputs restores symmetric equilibrium.
