Sharing the gainsfrom variety In this section, we first derive an aggregate production function that exhibits aggregate increasing returns due to input sharing despite constant returns to scale in perfectly competitive final production. This is based on Ethier's (1982) production-side version of Dixit and Stiglitz (1977). Aggregate increasing returns arise here from the productive advantages of sharing a wider variety of differentiated intermediate inputs produced by a monopolistically competitive industry la Chamberlin (1933).

This is consistent with the assumption of a continuum of workers but inconsistent with the (necessary) assumption of a discrete number of firms. We return to this issue below. G. Durantonand D. Puga 2084 0 V, Figure 2. Phase diagram for the labour-market pooling equilibrium. intuition can be seen graphically by considering point B on the W W locus. At this point, the ratio of firms to workers is the same in both location but location I has more of both. By Equation (25), profits are thus higher in location 1.

24 The main difference with the previous framework is that only a given set of tasks may be produced. Specifically, with tasks indexed by h, we assume that h E [0. n ], where n is fixed. This assumption plays two roles. It formalises the idea that final goods are produced by performing a fixed collection of tasks. It also leaves aside the gains from 21 See Holmes (1999) for a version of Dixit and Stiglitz (1977) that considers both. 22 Stigler (1951) argues that the Smithian argument also applies to the division of labour between firms.
