However, apart from the case of industrial districts, Marshall used externalities as a purely analytical expedient in order to continue to use a competitive framework even if in the real world the number of industries facing increasing returns to scale was rising, which undermined one of the conditions for perfect competition (numerosity of agents). The small selection of examples presented here does not give a true picture of the pervasiveness of externalities, which has been underscored by authors such as Hunt (1980).

Another concept of dynamic efficiency is given by innovative ability, which regards the capacity to develop process innovations (aimed at reducing costs) or product innovations (aimed at developing new products). Many economists and philosophers, beginning with Aristotle, have also developed differing conceptions of equity. e. the results of the economic process) for the members of a community. However, some argue that a distribution is equitable if it is arrived at in accordance with procedures that ensure the enjoyment of fundamental individual rights and liberties (Nozick, 1974).

Externalities cause divergences between private costs and social costs or, equivalently, between the marginal private product and the marginal social product. In the presence of external economies, the marginal private cost is greater than the marginal social cost. By contrast, external diseconomies result in higher marginal social costs than marginal private costs. The opposite holds for the marginal product. This has important consequences. Take the example of a polluting factory. The polluter does not have to bear the social cost of the pollution and, therefore, in equalising his (private) marginal cost and price he will produce a higher level of output than he would if the social cost of pollution were also included in his calculations.
