Assume the marginal cost is strictly increasing and always larger than the fixed cost - in particular, at $q=0$ (no production). Does it imply that the efficient scale is equal to zero? (Define efficient scale as the non-negative level of production q that minimizes the average cost.) Assume $q$ is one-dimensional and all cost functions are continuously differentiable.
