    4:45-- Clearly you've never woken up in a jail cell. Trust me, after a certain point even beer has diminishing marginal utility.

    This text makes the 4 hours I actually did spend in macro class makes it all worthwhile. And I'm an Econ major (please, hold the laughter. I know).

    Opportunity cost should read marginal cost. Good luck on your final!

    his opportunity cost is a decling in gross productivity. Unless he is staying home to do homework.

    "Cost" is more accurate than "opportunity cost" in this context because he is not emphasizing any opportunity he's missing by going to class so much as he's emphasizing how brutal it would be to drag his ass out of class.

    6:25 is correct. It's not opportunity cost in this context. It's that the cost or "pain" of going is not worth paying for the assumed marginal benefit of what he'll learn. So obviously the OP and all of you who unquestionably salivated At the attempted humor need Econ for Dummies.

    This could be right. What's he giving up by going to class? Rest and recovery. Maybe even morning sex. If that's his opportunity cost I'd agree it's greater than the marginal benefit of misery sitting through a 1.5 hr lecture.

    Excellently put. However, the Long Run average cost of missing class > the marginal benefit of skipping this is all under the assumption you are a shitty student. Did you get laid the night before? in which case SR marginal benefit of getting laid > SR benefit of class
