Reasons Behind a Decision

决定背后的理由


Look carefully at why you're making that purchase. If you buy a new computer because you plan to run a business at home with it, it's paying for itself. If you buy it merely to play around on social media or play solitaire, you may enjoy it, but it's a sunk cost.

仔细考虑为何你要进行这笔交易。如果你由于在家创业的计划,而打算买一台新电脑,那它可以自己承担这笔费用。如果你买电脑只是为了逛社交网站或是玩纸牌游戏,你可能可以玩个痛快,但其成本却无法回收。

Opportunity Costs

机会成本


Opportunity cost justifies putting money into a project while reaping benefits later. Opportunity costs include going to school to earn a degree or putting money into a business. While these items carry an up-front cost, they create an opportunity for future income. Even staying healthy is an opportunity cost because of its future benefits.

机会成本的意思是把资金投入一个项目,而一段时间后才能获得收益。机会成本包括上大学攻读学位以及投资一桩生意。虽然这些都需要一笔预先的资金投入,但却也为未来创造了可能的收益。而考虑到其未来收益,即使保持健康也是一种机会成本。
