"Marginal cost" does not include the price needed for distribution. An intelligent distribution yield lowered down costs and creates enough wriggling space for management heads to think about marketing. If there is a price paid for production, then there is a price paid for reaching the customer. This price of reaching the customer is very flexible and depends on the type of distributers around the supply chain network. If distribution can be made easier, then marginal costs will decrease.
