( e ) The normal return on investment equals the implicit costs of the entrepreneur (i.e. her salary foregone) of $25,000. Spreadsheet problem (a) & (b) See attached Excel file. (c) The covariance is negative, so it indicates that the finishing time and the age change inversely. Froeb and McCann’s chapter 3: a. Individual problems: 3-2 This is an example of the hidden-cost fallacy. The interest payments on the loan are $7,200 per year, so owning may appear to be a good deal, but you must also compute the opportunity cost of the down payment.
