Put another way, the basis for gains to trade from returns to scale is a decline in average costs of an activity whenever output in a specific location increases. Whenever average costs of production for a plant are decreasing in the amount currently produced at that plant, we will say that there are plant-level economies of scale (PLEoS). The two main causes of PLEoS are indivisible inputs (like the overhead workers we have already considered) and geometric relationships between cost and capacity.
1. 1 Comparative Advantage in the Short Run Decide what task (making soles or uppers) to assign to each worker in the Korea and Thailand plants. The 300 workers are under contract in each country and cannot be laid off in the short run. As a consequence, costs are fixed outside of your control. To maximize profits therefore you must focus on maximizing revenues. Assume that soles and uppers are light weight and compact so transportation costs can be reasonably ignored. Furthermore, you are a small player in the shoe industry and face a given market price for the shoes you make.
We can illustrate the gains to trade that come from exploiting returns to scale by modifying the shoe story. In contrast to assuming differences between the Thai and Korean workers, now we assume they are exactly alike in terms of their productivity and wages. No matter the task, each worker involved in production creates 100 uppers or soles per day. In this case opportunity costs are identical (1 upper per sole) and there is no gain from trade based on comparative advantage. The firm must divide its 600 workers 50-50, with 300 on each task, yielding 300 × 100 = 30000 shoes per day.
