Marshallian External Economies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper argues that, in the absence of indivisibilities, the expansion of an industry cannot generate economies of scale unless individual firms introduce the same change s in the way they carry out their activities. In the absence of some plausible focusing device, there is no good reason to expect this to happen.
