This work tries to dimension the volume of activity so that it can emphasis the break even point and the predicted volume for the desired profit. The relationship between volume-cost-profit, known as economies of scale, is explained by the unit profit growth as the volume of production raises, as a consequence of the decrease of the unit cost by reducing the fixed unit costs and keeping the variable unit costs as they are. There are analyzed the effect in trying to eliminate the competition and in practicing a political monopoly by the top companies and the measures of political economy undertook to erase the unfair competition and dumping.
