OVERVIEW:

Three very simple factors determine profit - cost, price and volume. What isn't so simple is their relationship. Cost affects price, price affects volume and volume affects cost. Though there is no magic formula for striking the balance, there is a technique which improves the chance of doing so. John Bird initiates John Cleese into the mysteries of fixed and variable costs, break-even point, contribution, depreciation, and the difference between marginal and total or absorption costing.
