Economic Definition of transferrable output. Defined.

Offline Version: PDF

Term transferrable output Definition: An output that has a relatively large geographic market area due to the low cost of transportation. The low transportation cost means it is easier (that is, less expensive) to bring the output to the consumers rather than locating consumers near the output. Like many things, transferrable outputs are a matter of degree. At the other end of the spectrum lies local outputs. Most manufactured goods tend to have a high degree of transferability. Information, especially through television broadcasting and Internet web sites, is also relatively easily transported.
