Interested in microeconomic?
Microeconomics examines how behaviours and decisions affect the supply and demand for goods and services determining prices. It also analyses failure where particular goods have failed to achieve the targets and standards expected on the market, in other words the elasticity of a product within the market system, hence providing assumptions and definitions for economists and profits and losses within a company can be determined as a result. Microeconomics is complex in that it relies on study and methods from other fields such as labour economics, financial economics, public economics, political and health economics to name a few.
