TOTAL VARIABLE COST CURVE: A curve that graphically represents the relation between total variable cost incurred by a firm in the short-run production of a good or service and the quantity produced. The marginal cost curve, THE focal point for the analysis of short-run production, can be derived directly from the total variable cost curve. The shape of the total variable cost curve reflects increasing marginal returns at small quantities of output and decreasing marginal returns at later quantities.

BROWN PRAGMATOX
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who often opts not to make a purchase, even though it could be problematic down the road. Family and friends realize that you carefully consider every expenditure that you make. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time looking for the new strip mall out on the highway wanting to buy either galvanized steel storage shelves or a large green chalkboard shaped like the state of Maine. Be on the lookout for door-to-door salesmen. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter E, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 657235. Your preferred shopping venue is thrift stores. Your special symbol is the comma (,).


Is this You?

As a Brown Pragmatox, you are down-to-earth and practical. You are hard working and industrious. You are frugal to the point that you might even refrain from making a purchase that you really, really need. Doing so often causes problems down the road. You definitely go with function over form and substance over style.


This isn't me! What am I?
FALLACY OF MASS APPEAL

The logical fallacy of arguing that something is "correct" or "true" because a majority of the population thinks so. This is commonly used by both advertisers and politicians. Just because something is popular, does not mean it is "right." In fact, a cynic might argue that being popular probably makes it "wrong."

Creating WEALTH

Wealth -- what is it and how do you get it? Perhaps one of those home business franchises that sell cleaning products, housewares, or perfume can be your source of financial independence. And, as evidenced by those late-night infomercials, the always lucrative area of real estate investment is almost certain to turn you into a gadzillionaire by next Thursday. Or perhaps tinkering in the financial markets with penny stocks, gold futures, or silver options is more your cup of tea. (My personal favorite is the Darling Donna's Chimney Sweep outfit that gives you the opportunity for a meaningful career in the high-profile field of chimney maintenance products.) The question for today is: Are any of these get-rich-quick schemes better than buying a lottery ticket?
