The 6 components of macroeconomics are: Interest, Money, Investment, Wages, Prices and Production. These are essential to understanding economics but sometimes they can seem a bit abstract when applied to the everyday workings of an economy.
Interest is the principal resource of interest. It is measured in the amount of money that the borrower has to pay back the lender over time. When an economic cycle is created by an increase in production and lower supply, the interest rate is pushed higher than normal because the market cannot meet the demand.
Interest is a form of income, which represents the payments made to the lender by the borrower as repayment for the loan. The interest rate is determined on a case-to-case basis by comparing the present value of a future loan to the present value of payments already made. Inflation is the one form of increasing interest rates. If the price of a commodity rises, so will the interest rate.
Money is the medium of exchange used for all transactions. Money is divided into two parts; money used as payment and currency used as an investment. Money is created by banks by creating bank notes and bank stock. Money is created from thin air and can be created by using barter, banking, or the production of money.
Production is measured in terms of goods and services produced per unit of time. All economies are based on the production of goods and services. A business can produce goods and services at a slower rate than the rate of production. Production is measured by money and the size of production is determined by costs. Prices are determined by costs. All these are influenced by money, production, costs, competition and other factors.
Macroeconomics is used to determine the best ways to make the economy run efficiently. It is used to determine whether a country should adopt a certain policy in order to help it achieve maximum productivity. In the United States, it is used to establish policies that promote growth and productivity. A central economic planning body is responsible for these policies and determines how to implement them in the economy.
Microeconomics focuses on the distribution of income and it provides information about the distribution of resources. Microeconomics examines the effects of changes in demand. In the United States, the focus of microeconomics is on the distribution of income. Microeconomics studies the distribution of income and the way that income is divided among different groups in society.
Macroeconomics is concerned with the effects of changes in the supply of goods and services. This includes the supply of goods and services needed by workers and the distribution of these goods and services among consumers. Economic theory teaches that economic activity and production are affected by changes in the supply of goods and services. Changes in the supply of goods and services are reflected in the demand for them.
These are just a few components of macroeconomics. There are many more.
