According to Mancur Olsons perspective collective action is most likely to be successful among which one what groups in the US?

Mancur Olson believed that collective action is most likely to be successful among small, cohesive groups in the US, such as trade unions or professional associations, rather than large and diverse groups. This is because smaller groups have a stronger sense of identity, common goals, and trust among members, making it easier to coordinate efforts and overcome free-rider problems.
