- How can the long-run average cost (LRAC) curve be derived from the short-run average total cost (SRATC) curve?
- Describe economies of scale and diseconomies of scale.
- What are the determinants of economies of scale and diseconomies of scale, respectively?
- Using a real-world company (other than Sysco), explain the causes of economies of scale for your company.
- Explain how economies of scale help your company compete in its industry.
