Economies of Scale and International Trade Economy

In relation to international trade economy, Christopher Mark (1993) provided the following definition of Economies of Scale: (Also known as increasing returns to scale.) Cost savings that occur in production processes where higher output levels allow a firm to employ more productive technology –so that doubling inputs, for example, will result in more than a doubling of output. Economies of scale can be a source of international trade flows apart from comparative advantage if productdifferentiation exists and individual countries are unable to produce a full range of differentiated manufactures themselves (see intra- industry trade).
