Accounting-Economics Decision Making Each Decision Research Proposal

Excerpt from Research Proposal :

Rational people think on the brink of the margin. This means that a rational decision-maker takes action if and only if the marginal benefit of the action exceeds the marginal cost. People tend to always respond to incentives. Behavior often changes when costs or benefits change (Principles of Economics, 2006).

People make decisions based upon two things. What they are going to get out of the decision and how much is the decision going to cost. People weigh decisions by comparing the marginal benefits against the marginal costs (Marginal Analysis, n.d.) And since people strive to get the most bangs for their buck, making less risky and thus less costly decisions will most often win out. The economic system as a whole relies heavily on the fact that people are going to take some risks and make some decisions.
