We make choices as consumers every day. Opportunity cost is defined as a person’s "next best alternative" or "the cost of what you give up when you make a choice."

Think of a recent decision you made regarding your career. What was your opportunity cost for making that choice? What was your "next best alternative"?

    Since I retired almost 15 years ago as a teacher, so I've made no "recent decisions" about my career.

    Fifteen years ago I decided to retire. I gave up income and increased credits for my pension.

    My next best alternative was to work as a substitute teacher to continue earning some income.
