a senior majoring in computer network development at Smart State University.

Gordon is a senior majoring in computer
network development at Smart State University. While he has been attending
college, Gordon started a computer consulting business to help senior citizens
set up their network connections and teach them how to use e-mail. Gordon
charges $25 per hour for his consulting services. Gordon also works 5 hours a
week for the Economics Department to maintain that department’s Web page. The
Economics Department pays Gordon $20 per hour. From this information we can
conclude:

a. Gordon
should increase the number of hours he works for the Economics Department to
make it comparable to his consulting business income.

b. Gordon
is obviously not maximizing his well-being if he continues to work for the
Economics Department.

c. If
Gordon chooses one hour at the beach with his friends rather than spend one
more hour with a consulting client, the forgone income of $25 is considered a
cost of the choice to go to the beach.

d. If
the Economics Department offers Gordon a full-time job he will definitely not
take the job offer.

33. Economists normally assume that the goal of a
firm is to

a. maximize
its total revenue.

b. maximize
its profit.

c. minimize
its explicit costs.

d. minimize
its total cost.
