The hypothetical lemonade stand was to demonstrate what problems exist. 1) Expanding a finite customer base. 2) Remaining competitive with the limitations of a finite resource.
Competition require either doubling output to maintain a basic standard to the new minimum or inflating prices and hope the customer doesn’t buy elsewhere (outsourcing). Both are very real issues and what we as a country have been dealing with for a long time now.
The lemonade stand could just as easily be Zenith Televisions that we are talking about.
