Omschrijving Microeconomics for EOR deals with the basic principles of microeconomic theory. Every day, consumers make decisions about the purchase of goods and services, while companies continuously decide what their product range will include and in what quantities they will supply their products. In most economies, the decisions of consumers and producers are coordinated through markets by means of the price mechanism. Microeconomics deals with the individual decisions of consumers and producers and their coordination through the price mechanism. It studies the behavior of companies and how this behavior contributes to social welfare.
