Abstract:

ProCosts explores how the owners of businesses make resource allocation decisions. Markets send price signals that heavily influence how business gets conducted. ProCosts packages these price signals in several basic economic tools. A basic understanding of markets, prices, and resource scarcity might help people who are grappling with resource allocation decisions -like why conserve natural resources?
