PRODUCTION COST: The opportunity cost of using labor, capital, land, and entrepreneurship in the production of goods and services. Production cost is important to supply. The price received by a seller must be great enough to cover production cost. Note that production cost includes what you probably think of as the traditional "cost of doing business," but it includes other less obvious costs, as well. While labor, capital, and land typically involve an explicit cost--an actual money payment--the cost of entrepreneurship is often an implicit cost. In particular, the cost of entrepreneurship is termed normal profit.

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.

Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time visiting every yard sale in a 30-mile radius wanting to buy either a weathervane with a horse on top or a case of blank recordable DVDs. Be on the lookout for slightly overweight pizza delivery guys.
