The result is that nonspecialization takes place if and only if economies of technical complementarity between two learning activities outweigh economies of specialization generated by a higher utilization level of a particular leaming and training investment. Rosen uses this model to emphasize again that interpersonal complementarity may exist in the absence of technical complementarity. If (jzCI(jk1k z = 0, then technical complementarity does not exist, but two individuals can be better off by completely specializing in different activities and by utilizing the social complementarity.

As Young argued, the replacement of Smith 's concept of economies of division of labour with Marshall's concept of economies of scale obscures the distinction, thereby misleading economics. Yang (1984, pp. 425-31; 1985, pp. 272-91) develops a model to endogenize individuals' levels of specialization and the level of divi- Xiaokai Yang and Siang Ng 21 sion of labour in society by abandoning the dichotomy between pure consumers and firms. In this model, each individual is a consumerproducer who prefers diverse consumption and specialized production because of economies of specialization.

But a very high transformation curve may not be efficient because it may be associated with a very high level of transaction cost. Hence, the conventional coincidence between the production possibility frontier (PPF) and the utility fron tier may not hold in this framework . But as the transaction cost coefficient falls, the utility frontier in general equilibrium will be closer to the PPF . The first type of comparative statics substantially enhance the power of general equilibrium models in explaining changes in patterns of market network.
