Industrial concentration and scaling

  • Benoit B. Mandelbrot
Chapter

Abstract

Since the theme of concentration is mentioned in the title of this book, and this book boasts several alternative entrances, it is appropriate that yet another introductory chapter, even a very brief one, should take up the phenomenon of industrial concentration, and the meaning — or absence of meaning — of the notion of average firm size in an industry.
