AmosWEB means Economics with a Touch of Whimsy!

IMPLICIT OPPORTUNITY COST: An opportunity cost that does NOT involve a money payment or a market transaction. This should be contrasted with explicit cost that DOES involve a money payment or a market transaction. The common misconception among non-economists out there in the real world is that the term "cost" is synonymous with the term "payment," that is, all costs are explicit costs, to be a cost you have to give up some money. Well, I'm here to tell you that this isn't true. Cost is opportunity cost. It's the satisfaction NOT received from activities NOT pursued. It's the value of foregone production. And not all opportunity costs involve a money payment.

GREEN LOGIGUIN
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who is logical and rational, reasonable and analytical, judicious and sensible, even to the point of aggravation. Family and friends look to you as their bedrock, their cornerstone, their foundation, but not necessarily as their star attraction. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time searching for a specialty store seeking to buy either a wall poster commemorating last Friday (you know why) or a country wreathe. Be on the lookout for malfunctioning pocket calculators. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter Q, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 180295. Your preferred shopping venue is strip malls. Your special symbol is the equal sign (=).


Is this You?

As a Green Logiguin, you seek a balance in life and your market activities. You are logical and reasonable, always seeking to weigh costs and benefits, pros and cons, ups and downs, ins and outs, goods and bads. You are the embodiment of yin and yang. You know that there are two sides to every story and every market exchange. Sometimes you buy. Sometimes you sell. You search out the best deals, with the highest quality and lowest price.


This isn't me! What am I?
POLITICAL GAME

The political system can be thought of as a game, a contest between two groups of players. Rulers are the ones who set the rules. Rulees are the ones who must abide by the rules. The political game, of course, has serious consequences, with winners and losers. The distribution, either concentrated or dispersed, of these consequences can have a profound effect on the game. The study of public choice provides insight into the economic efficiency with which the political game is played.

Pumping Up The ECONOMIC GROWTH

We need to pay another visit to Scarcity Stan's Ye Olde Bakery Shoppe and Confectionery Palace. But this is not a social visit, nor is intended for some delectable pastries that will add a few extra pounds to our waistlines. We're here on official economic business. Stan's at wits end. He doesn't know what to do. There's been so much demand for his economic pie, what with society's unlimited wants and needs, that he needs to make it bigger. Our job is to figure out how. While we're doing that, we'll also see how to put our economy on the path to economic growth.
