This external economies-based acceleration principle then forms the basis of the possibility of 'increasing returns in production possibilities, i.e., higher volume of production in one line of production would be attended by higher production elsewhere in the economy.
This perspective therefore gives importance to the imperatives of 'efforts and talents', but views the actualization of technological progress as dependent on the working out of the external economies-based acceleration principle that brings in more resources in more productive fields, which in turn is dependent on a permissive financial structure.
Also, the domestic incidence of increased industrial differentiation adds to domestic knowledge creation in terms of additional tasks and specializations that can support more profitable further investment opportunities in the intermediate stage production, signifying the working of the Youngian acceleration principle. The resources released from the final goods should be redeployed in the more specialized intermediate goods production, and the overall capital formation (and its rate) should increase, especially in the intermediate production stage.
Theories that explain the factors affecting investment, such as final return on investment, the neoclassical theory of investment and the acceleration principle, focus on two factors in investment: financing expenses and production volume.
GDP at factor cost: According to the neoclassical theory and the acceleration principle, the coefficient of this variable shows the effects of production demand on investment.
Other implications of the maximal acceleration principle in Nature, like neutrino oscillations and other phenomena, have been studied by [54], [67], [22].
Toller [73] has explored the different possible geometries associated with the maximal acceleration principle and the physical implications of the meaning of an "observer", "measuring device" in the cotangent space.
And, in a footnote to the above, 'Mr Harrod's system is incompletely dynamized; he introduces the dynamic acceleration principle but he still interprets the multiplier as an instantaneous relationship'.
He argued that there was some force in the view that the acceleration principle itself implied a lag, but he 'deliberately neglected' the study of lags 'to get the clearest possible view of the forces determining the trend and its influence as such' (Harrod 1939, p.
The SynchroCrusher, developed by Synside, is a new type of impact crusher incorporating an innovative acceleration principle. The basic idea is to cause the particles to impact not directly against a stationary impact member, but first, for primary impact against a co-rotating impact member (the driver) and then for secondary impact against a stationary impact member (the stator).
Nevertheless, the proposed regulations allow the payment of the premium (i.e., the intercompany transaction) to be determined on a separate member basis, not under the matching and acceleration principles of the proposed regulations.(64)
