That would be your opportunity cost. Ties in with loss of utility, efficient use of resources, etc. Economics 101 (maybe 102, depends on how deep you want to delve into it).

You understand the economic cost of a good, even if you didn't know it; kinda sounds like you did though. Pity the same can't be said for too many around here; we might have debates with substance if they did.
