You know how it works. Every month you figure out the money you have coming in and the money you owe. There are your recurring bills for things like your cell phone and internet. There’s your regular spending on groceries and transportation. Then, there’s the money you spend to service your debt. That could be your mortgage, auto loan, student loans, personal loan or credit card debt.
Economic cost which is also known as opportunity cost is the value you give up when you choose one economic activity over the next best economic activity. Such economic activities might include buying goods or services or staring a business. You can calculate the economic cost by finding the difference between the chosen economic activity and the alternative economic activity.
