Tracking Macro Variables For Micro Decision Making


Every business operates within an external environment. The economic composition of this environment may create an enabling or stifling setting for an individual business. An awareness and understanding of these may help a business to be proactive in its decisions and create an edge for itself in the competitive environment. Economic environment and the component economic variables are important indicators that reveal the health of an economy. They also specifically give signals about the forthcoming opportunities and impending dangers. Knowledge of these variables and comprehension of changes in them can enable appropriate and well informed decision making.
