Finance Behind the Veil of Money: Response to Dr. Braun’s Comment


  • Howden, David


What is the relationship between opportunity cost, choice and action? In my review of Eduard Braun´s Finance Behind the Veil of Money (2014), I took exception with his view that opportunity costs are not only unnecessary, but even detrimental to understand decision making. The most substantial difference between our views comes from Braun´s treatment of the relationship between opportunity cost and choice.
