3. 4. “ Law of diminishing marginal productivity” <ul><li>Increases in variable input will result in increases in total production at a decreasing rate </li></ul><ul><ul><li>additional contribution of the variable input to total output decreases, as the variable input is increased </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>(2 laborers in a Internet Café are enough, to add 1 more, would decrease the output) </li></ul></ul>
