Concept of Microeconomics

Micro means millionth part. When we talk about microeconomics, we mean some small part of the whole economy.

For example, if we study individual economic agents such as a consumer or firm, it is a micro approach.
If it is an analysis of price, it is of a commodity or factor of production, not the general price level. In the case of demand analysis, it is a demand for a particular commodity or service of a firm/industry, not aggregate demand for the whole economy.
Thus, microeconomics deals with the behavior of individual decision-making units. Full employment is one of the important features of microeconomics is, that is why the economic problem in micro approach lies in resource allocation or in price determination.

Therefore, it is called “Price theory”. Concept of Micro and Macro Economics.


Concept of Macroeconomics

Macroeconomics is concerned with the aggregates and average of entire economies such as national income, aggregate demand, and supply, full employment, aggregate consumption, saving, investment, general price, and inflation. In it, we study how these aggregates and averages are determined and what causes fluctuations in them. It also deals with how an economy grows and develop.
The macro approach is not a mere aggregation of micro approach. It is quite different and far more complicated than summation and multiplication. For example, let us consider the case of saving. In times of depression, saving by an individual is beneficial, while saving by the economy will definitely deepen the depression further.
