Actions for Discussion 3.2: Costs

 

Discuss why is it important for a firm manager to be able to differentiate between the different types of costs such as historical costs, accounting costs, opportunity costs, long run costs, short run costs, private costs, and social costs? How can knowing this differentiation be used by the firm’s manager to the firm’s benefit? Then, using the NAU library, find and discuss articles about firms that illustrate these 7 different types of costs in the real world. (Note: you will probably need to use more than one article to be able to discuss all of these different costs) Defend your answer and cite your sources.
