    HELPP with profit maximization... okei so we all agree that the optimum point of production of a good is where MC=MR. Now take for instance that i own a factory and make pens. I have one machine that allows me to produce 100 pens. And I sell them all so I decide It is time to go full economy of scale and buy another machine which costs me, say $200.

    The price of my pens when I had one machine was $1 each and they costed me say $ 0.5 but now that I want to produce 101 pens, that pen number 101 costs me $200 right? that means that marginal cost for producing one more pen is $250-$50 which is $200.

    According to MC=MR the profit I have to make from each pen is $200 because that is what costed me produce one more pen?

    Interest is the return of savings. This mean people would earn more if they save more. Since disposable income can either be spend or saved, more spending i.e. consumption would have a cost in terms of high monetary returns through saving which would be foregone hence its opportunity cost.
