An Introduction To Microeconomics

The economic recovery is still uneven as country and state regulatory measures target business conditions. Earnings trends over recent 3 quarters continued to decline slightly, 4 points to a modest net loss, however report indicated earnings beat expectations. Many believe this weakness is transitory and temporary. However the overall picture of weak or flat growth for the U.S. economy, as well as the Europe economies, has been confirmed in recent economic reports.


From my perspective economics is the study of supply and demand, or business cycles, in relation to other factors such as unemployment and inflation. Economics is important for those who are either running businesses or managing others for their own finances. It’s also good business etiquette to ask the economists on what is going on with your business.

In a time when the business cycle is undergoing so much negative economic systems feedback loops are obvious. There is no denying that there are a number of economic systems that are working against each other. As the business cycle moves forward at a snail pace, many feel that they have missed an important period in history. It seems the current economic systems are not compatible with one another and are experiencing various forms of resistance. From my observations it appears that it is difficult to break through these barriers.

For example we have the retail sector, wholesale suppliers, manufacturers, distributors, middlemen and governments all interacting with one another in a never-ending economic system. Retailers want more wholesale goods, which come from other countries, to sell at a better price and consumers want to have more choices for different products. In order for the system to function the suppliers need to get the goods to market. This interaction of business and economics produces ever increasing distortions. The distortions inevitably result in less efficient service and products.

Microeconomics is an economic system that addresses the micro aspects of a business. This is an essential part of business theory, since it is the analysis of how the economy affects its components. The concepts of macroeconomics and microeconomics are not the same as economics. This is an area of study that economics is just a simple description of the interactions of business and economic systems in a particular area.

Microeconomics has three different components. These are supply, demand and the level of prices. There are also a concept of economy versus non-economy. This last component looks closely at the activities of government businesses, which are generally not publicly traded but are instead privately owned and operated.

It is possible that small businesses are currently operating in a state of limited business. This is when the owner has limited liability. There are also cases where the business meets all the legal requirements but the gross revenue produced is less than the required minimum. The small business owners are required to meet all regulations and licensing criteria even if they are small. This is because these businesses are considered to be the backbone of the small community that provides jobs for the residents. It is very important to know that the government owns almost eighty percent of the land surface area and almost forty percent of the property throughout the United States of America, with another five percent being publicly owned by other private organizations.

It is important to know that small businesses should have an economic model that works for the community. If there is no plan for local economic development, then there will be a tendency for the businesses to locate themselves in places that have enough consumers and businesses to support them. However, this is not a good thing for the entire economy. It is important to study the basic economic systems and compare them to the business world to see what kind of system would work best for the type of business that one is aspiring to start.
