Since I have seen different types of long run average cost curve, I wonder how one can obtain those curves given the fact, future being uncertain. I imagine that one-year long run average total cost curve is obtainable. How can one obtain decade long run average total cost curve? Should one perform the similar experiments for the short run total cost curve in a smaller timed windows? Furthermore, should one treat in the short time, each measurement measuring the same SRATC?
