ECO 550

1)

You have opened your own word-processing service. You bought a personal computer, and paid $5,000 for it. However, due to the cost changes in the computer industry, the current price of an equivalent machine is $2,500. You could sell any used machine for $1,000. If you were not word processing, you could earn $20,000 per year at an alternative job. Assume that the interest rate is 10%. You can also hire an assistant who can do everything that you can do for $20,000 per year (you would still continue to do word processing).

One person using one computer can produce 11,000 typed pages per year, and the price per page for your service is $2.

You are considering three options: (1) expand your business by hiring an assistant; (2) leave your business the way it is; (3) shut down. Based on the costs and revenues above, which should you do? Explain and show any relevant calculations.

  1. Please type your subject in the School Subject box. Any other words, including obscure abbreviations, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.

    In addition, what kind of HELP do you need? You need to be specific when asking questions here.

    If all you do is post your entire assignment, with no evidence of thinking on your part, nothing will happen since no one here will do your work for you. But if you are specific about what you don't understand about the assignment or exactly what help you need, someone might be able to assist you.
