About This Class

In Economics, we have a very specific way of defining costs that entrepreneurs and managers should consider (but they don't always). 

Let me ask you a question here: If you own the building or land that you are using for business then would you add the rent of that building/land while calculating your costs? 
Probably not, because you are not paying the rent explicitly. Right? 

Well, according to the meaning of costs in Economics, that would be an error. In Economics, we not only care about explicit costs but implicit costs as well..! 

These economic terms and concept might look heavy and confusing right now, however, jump right into the first lecture and I am sure it will start making sense. 

Let's get started!
