Abstract:This paper presents a new approach to the theory of the firm by identifying factor complementarities as central to the determination of the firm's boundaries. The factor complementarities, as well as economies of scale and scope. We examine the tradeoff between the gains froom these complementarities and transactions costs. In so doing, we must abandon the standard dichotomy between the determinants of plant size and firm size. The influence of factor complementarities on firm size in partial and general equilibrium frameworks.
