Sample text

Even in his day something like division of labor was known to exist in insect societies, and Linnaeus had already described aphids as ants' cows. Smith was carefully ambiguous about the question whether the propensity to truck can itself be reduced to more immediately rational considerations, but he did point out the advantages of following that propensity. These advantages are the increase in skill, the saving of time otherwise necessary to switch from one job to another, and the enhanced possibilities of using tools and machinery.

In this case u is more closely associated with worker talents and abilities, as an equivalent derivation in terms of a distributional argument makes clear. Each worker's skills are described Substitution and Division of Labour 43 by a point in the (tut2) plane, and if m is very large the potential market supply of skills is a continuous distribution function M%(tx,t2). M is the number of workers and £>{tx,t2) is a probability density indicating the proportion of workers in a neighbourhood of (t{,t2).

It is shown by the curve and is inefficient because comparative advantage is not exploited. The gain from forming a production team and dividing up the work according to comparative advantage is measured by the distance between the efficient and autarky frontiers along a ray with slope cc2jax . The optimum assignment produces a kind of multiplicative effect or superadditivity. This interaction captures the fundamental notion of complementarity (in the sense of a positive cross partial derivative) in production, and leads to imperfect substitution between worker types A and B in the team.
