The division of labour
  • The division of labour occurs where production is broken down into many separate tasks
  • Division of labour can raise output per person as people become proficient through constant repetition of a task
  • This is called “learning by doing”
  • This gain in labour productivity helps to lower the supply cost per unit
  • Reduced supply costs in theory will lead to lower prices for consumers of goods and services causing gains in economic welfare e.g. through an increase in consumer surplus
