Economies of scale or increasing returns, in the context of production; imply a proportionately larger increase in output for any given increase in input. The idea of increasing returns first came from none other than Adam Smith: through his famous pin-making example, Adam Smith illustrated how specialization or division of labor could lead to lower unit costs. Adam Smith, as Kaldor (1972) remarks in his account of where economic theory went wrong, abandoned the assumption of increasing returns in favor of constant returns, from the middle of the fourth chapter of Vol. I of the Wealth of Nations; and so did the neo-classical general equilibrium theory that came later.

The economies of scope concept are defined as the process of reducing the cost of resources and skills for an individual business enterprise by spreading the use of these resources and skills over two or more enterprises according to Don Hofstrand, Co-Director – Ag Marketing Resource Center Iowa State University. As shown in Graph blow, the cost for an enterprise is cut in half if the resources are used in two enterprises rather than just one. If the use of the resources is spread over three enterprises, the cost per enterprise is reduced to a third.
