- Microeconomics is the study of how Individuals and firms make themselves as well
off as possible in a world of scarcity, and the consequences of those individual decisions
for markets and the entire economy. In studying microeconomics, we examine how individual
consumers and firms make decisions and how the interaction of many individual
decisions affects markets.
