The limit of macroeconomics is a concept developed by Nobel Laureate Joseph Stiglitz which suggests that when economies reach a certain level of size, their ability to adjust to changes in the economic environment. To put it differently, if the economy is too big, it can't change. Stiglitz defines a macro-economy as an economy in which growth and unemployment are not major factors influencing the decision making process and hence economic policies are not adjusted based on the market.
In his book “The Limit of Micro,” Stiglitz argues that a macro-economy is a better option for society as compared to a micro-economy because a macro-economy can adjust quickly to sudden changes in demand. It is also a lot more stable than a micro-economy because it allows countries to grow and develop in ways that a micro-economy cannot.
The problem with a macro-economy is that it causes problems for other economic factors that might not have been working properly before. This means that the economy is too big and cannot adapt well to changes in demand. Thus, it is a problem when the economy is in recession. It is also possible that there is too much growth in the economy and this results in inflation.
The limitations of macro economics have led many people to question the whole idea of the concept. However, others feel that a macro-economy is necessary for the development of the economy and thus they do not object to it at all. In fact, Stiglitz has argued that it is only during economic crises that it is important to look at macroeconomics and to adopt policies that help stabilize the economy.
Some of the limitations of macroeconomics include the fact that it is an idealistic view of the world and it fails to recognize the real world problems that we face. As such, we can say that macro-economics is nothing but an idealism. Another limitation is that it does not take into account the impact of other economic factors which affect the economy. For example, if the price level rises in relation to the growth of capital equipment, the increase in manufacturing will also affect the price level and so will the increase in demand for capital goods. And so on.
The last limitation of macroeconomics is that it may be a little too simplified for some. It fails to take into account the fact that different countries have different characteristics, and they may differ significantly from one another and so the macro theory fails to take these differences into consideration.
