  44. 44. Explicit and Implicit Costs Explicit Costs : The money payment that a firm makes to the outsiders who supply inputs. These are the “out of pocket ” costs. Eg. Salaries, price paid for raw material, components etc.
  45. 45. <ul><li>Implicit Costs : The costs of the “self owned” resources which are employed by the firm and are non – expenditure costs. </li></ul><ul><li>Eg. Salary of the proprietor, interest on the entrepreneur’s own investment etc. </li></ul>
  46. 46. Economic Profit versus Accounting Profit <ul><li>Economists measure a firm’s economic profit as total revenue minus all the opportunity costs (explicit and implicit). </li></ul><ul><li>Accountants measure the accounting profit as the firm’s total revenue minus only the firm’s explicit costs. In other words, they ignore the implicit costs. </li></ul>
  47. 47. Economic Profit versus Accounting Profit <ul><li>When total revenue exceeds both explicit and implicit costs, the firm earns economic profit. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Economic profit is smaller than accounting profit. </li></ul></ul>
