What are Economies of Scale?

Tony Medina explains why economies of scale are so important, especially when looking at a business model and why your first instinct may be completely wrong.



“In microeconomics, economies of scale are the cost advantages that enterprises obtain due to their scale of operation (typically measured by the amount of output produced), with cost per unit of output decreasing with increasing scale.

Economies of scale apply to a variety of organizational and business situations and at various levels, such as a business or manufacturing unit, plant or an entire enterprise.


So what does that actually mean for you as an Expat?  If you are are trying to create your own business or increase your income, how can you benefit from this?

Tony Medina uses the example of why a country like Korea can move so much further ahead then somewhere like the USA in areas like Cosmetic Surgery.
