Decreasing marginal returns typically surface after the first few quantities of a variable input are added to a fixed input. Compare this with increasing marginal returns. You should also compare this with diseconomies of scale associated with long-run production.

Traditional banks that are chartered by a government of one of the fifty states and which are not automatically members of the Federal Reserve System.

State banks tend to smaller than national banks and whether justified or not tend to be slightly less prestigious. In the modern economy this distinction is less important than it was a few decades bank when state banks were subject to lesser state regulations than national banks.
