Expert's answer
1. An economist left her BAM 100,000 - a - year teaching position to work full - time in her own consulting business. In the first year, she had total revenue of BAM 200,000 and business expenses of BAM 100,000. She made a zero economic profit, because if we include implicit costs of 100,000 salary of a teacher, then economic profit = 200,000 - 100,000 - 100,000 = 0.
So, the right answer is:
e. zero economic profit.
2. All statements are true, so the right answer is:
e. All of these.
