Minimum effective scale in export promotion
Nonprice promotion has long been used by small firms or organizations to increase agricultural exports. Some believe that export promotion in these cases is often unsuccessful as the promoter is unable to achieve the “critical mass” of awareness that is required for success. The objective of this article is to develop a theoretical explanation for the likely existence of minimum expenditure thresholds and to estimate their size using an econometric model of the optimal supply of advertising. An empirical example of apple promotion from Washington state (USA) finds minimum effective scale levels for four key promotion activities among several Latin American countries.[EconLit citations: C34, M37, Q17]. © 2002 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
