Opportunities and Costs

Dwight R. Lee
In this podcast, Dwight Lee explains that, because of scarcity, every time we do one thing we necessarily have to forgo doing something else desirable. So there is an opportunity cost to everything we do, and that cost is expressed in terms of the most valuable alternative that is sacrificed. (8:45 minutes)
