Size Distributions and the Optimal Size of Firms

  • Bertil Näslund
Part of the Lecture Notes in Economics and Mathematical Systems book series (LNE, volume 143)


In this chapter, we will turn to a different topic, namely the size distribution of firms 1) This is methodologically related to the subject treated in chapter 3, since — to a large extent — the same tools have been used to explain existing distributions, and there is also a further connection since one might take the size distribution of income as a staring point in order to explain income distribution as will be shown in the end of this chapter.
