In both theoretical and applied economics, the long‐run conditions of production for a firm or an industry are often presented in the form of a capital‐labour isoquant. Even with constant returns to scale, this representation cannot be derived from the full, detailed representation of conditions of production. Capital theory results for the aggregate economy are thus extended to the individual firm level.
