Assessing returns to scale in research may be useful in predicting certain aspects of the development of artificial intelligence, in particular the dynamics of an intelligence explosion. Results The conclusions in this article are drawn from an incomplete review of academic literature assessing research efficiency, presented in Table 1. Canadian industries operated at percent of their production capacity in the last quarter of , down from a downwardly revised percent in the previous period but above market expectations of percent. This was the fifth decrease in six quarters, mainly due to declines in mining and quarrying (pp to %), in particular, potash mining amid disruptions in the rail.   Bend All Auto, two other Ontario firms get scale-up funds from province. Expansions at two auto industry companies and a building products manufacturer will create 90 new jobs. A cost function approach to the estimation of minimum efficient scale, returns to scale, and suboptimal capacity: With an application to Canadian manufacturing Article Feb Author: Ian Keay.

  Canadian Manufacturing magazine is the top source for daily industry-focused news in Canada. We cover the world of manufacturing across all the .   The reason there is no such thing as decreasing returns to scale was explained well by Tjalling Koopmans in his book Three Essays on the State of Economic Science. The argument is the replication argument: if all factors are duplicated, then an identical copy of the production process can be set up and output will be doubled. (a) Increasing returns to scale and high fixed costs may be inconsistent with perfect competition. In such a case, the initial autarkic state may be a suboptimal equilibrium. For example, relative prices may not equal marginal rates of transformation. [35] †Accordingly, it is necessary to examine the returns to scale of Chinese manufacturing sectors with a method rather than DEA. The Diewert-Fox model as elucidated in Diewert and Fox [1] provides a good candidate for this purpose. A single firm or production unit is considered in the model that produces N outputs and uses M inputs for Cited by: 4.

Abstract. The primary purpose of this article is to investigate whether or not economies of scale exist in the production of hospital services. In previous studies the results have implied the existence of economies of scale, but the question has not been satisfactorily by:   We discuss returns to scale (applied to an intermediate macroeconomics course). Covering increasing returns to scale, decreasing returns to .   Established in , Canadian Scale is a leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of Weighing Systems.
