Economies of Scale in European Manufacturing Revisited
AbstractWe test for internal and external economies of scale in European manufacturing employing a more disaggregated data set than what has been used in earlier analyses, and aim to separate externalities from common business cycle effects. Fifteen European manufacturing industries in Germany, France, the U.K. and Italy are analysed. We focus on economies of scale at three levels: the national industry, the national industrial cluster, and the transnational industry.
