Explain how "learning by doing" and transportation costs each affect the long-run average

 Explain how "learning by doing" and transportation costs each affect the long-run average cost curve.

97) Assume a new technology is developed that increases the productivity of capital and creates additional economies of scale. How would this affect the firm's minimum efficient scale of operation. Illustrate this effect graphically.

98) Assume that firms A and B have the same minimum efficient scale of operation and, at current production levels, both firms are incurring the same average costs of production. However, firm A's output is 5 times larger than firm B's output. How is this possible?

99) Briefly summarize the empirical literature on the long-run costs typically incurred by firms in a variety of industries. In particular, is there reason to believe that firms' long-run cost curves assume the typical U-shape? Why or why not?

100) Use the firm's long-run cost-minimizing decision rule to explain the differences in the relative use of capital and labor in agriculture in the United States and the Peoples Republic of China.
