Some assertions in Engl and Scotchmer [J. Math. Econ. 26 (1996) 209] concerning prior Literature are corrected. In addition, I discuss the differences between the convergence results of Engl and Scotchmer [J. Math. Econ. 26 (1996) 209], and those of this author, alone and with Martin Shubik, dating from 1980. Our prior and concurrent results show that (approximate) epsilon-cores of games with many players treat most similar players nearly equally; that is, approximate cores of large games have the equal treatment property. The convergence result of Engl and Scotchmer shows that, in per capita terms, epsilon-core payoffs to sufficiently large groups of players can be approximated by equal-treatment payoffs.
