Oksanata where did they get that invisible set-up costs for economies of scale? I see only mass production is more economical+specialization of labor+workers tend to learn more from their experience...What's that invisible set-up costs?
schweitzdm I am not sure, @Oksanata. I checked the CFAI book and didn't see it either, but I might have missed it!

The topic is discussed around page 127 of the Econ book.
Huricane74 @Oksanata:

InDIvisible set up costs are fixed costs.

From an accounting point of view, these are costs that all allocated based on the quantity produced or over a period of time.
