Economic Resources

Microeconomics is the study of the behaviour and decisions of individuals and businesses in markets across the economy. We start our study of microeconomics by looking at the resources which an economy may have available to supply and produce goods and services to meet the ever-changing needs and wants of individuals and society as a whole.

In economics we classify goods as “tangible” products, example might include food and drink, cars, digital televisions, flat-screen televisions, energy products and cricket bats! Services are sometimes known as intangibles, education and health-care are two important services and tourism, business consultancy, cleaning and home insurance are all examples of services.
