MONEY CHARACTERISTICS: Almost any item, any asset, any "thing" can function as money so long as it is generally accepted as payment. In fact, a lot of different "things" have been used as money over the centuries. While a number of "things" have been used as money, some have worked better than others. Those "things" that didn't work so well were replaced by other "things" that worked better. Those "things" that worked best tended to have four basic characteristics: (1) durability, (2) divisibility, (3) transportability, and (4) noncounterfeitability.

ACCOUNTING COST

An actual outlay or expenses incurred in the production of a good that shows up in a firm's accounting statements and records. Accounting cost is an explicit payment (that is, money changing hands) incurred by a firm. Accounting cost, while very important to accountants, company CEOs, shareholders, and the Internal Revenue Service, is only minimally important to economists. The reason is that economists are more interested in economic cost (also called opportunity cost), which is the value of foregone production.
