For all remaining vaguenesses and ...
Cost-volume-profit (CVP) analysis expands the use of information provided by breakeven analysis. A critical part of CVP analysis is the point where total revenues equal total costs (both fixed and variable costs). At this breakeven point ( BEP ), a company will experience no income or loss. This BEP can be an initial examination that precedes more detailed CVP analysis. Cost-volume-profit analysis employs the same basic assumptions as in breakeven analysis. The assumptions underlying CVP analysis are: The behavior of both costs and revenues is linear throughout the relevant range of activity. (This assumption precludes the ...

The High Cost of Loving Your Phone
OUR cellphones have become love objects. We take them everywhere and stare at them constantly. We panic when they are lost and grieve when they die. We even clothe them. If we covet a new one, well — I’ll stop the analogy here, because economists have a better way to describe the problem: there are switching costs. That’s their term for the barrier that keeps us from blithely embracing a new product. You would think that there were few barriers to switching cellphones.
