    Labor $400
    Equipment $300
    Materials $100

    It owns the building (which usually rents for $800) that it uses for the business. The owner gave up his $48000 annual salary as a bank manager to run the business. He does not pay himself a salary but draws $500 a week from profit (the total profit from the business).

    On a monthly basis-

    What is the total accounting cost?

    What is the total economic cost?
