Comments on: The opportunity cost of buying iPhones and Cronuts http://blogs.reuters.com/ben-walsh/2013/09/20/the-opportunity-cost-of-buying-iphones-and-cronuts/ Sun, 26 Oct 2014 17:29:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: joeporter http://blogs.reuters.com/ben-walsh/2013/09/20/the-opportunity-cost-of-buying-iphones-and-cronuts/#comment-546 Wed, 25 Sep 2013 16:11:45 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/ben-walsh/?p=2186#comment-546 One of St. Louis’ main grocery stores has been selling deep-fried croissants for at least a decade, and at $0.75 each. No lines. They are delicious. Why pay $5.00 for something when you can get it for 75 cents?

Apple could learn a thing or two from this.

I work by Madison Square Park and watch people queue for 1.5hrs for a burger at shake shack. I have asked myself about the opportunity cost of doing his given you can get a burger nearby in 2 minutes

Your marginal benefit analysis has fallacies.

Couldn’t you just call it time cost and monetary cost?
