The study of economics has two major categories, micro economic and macro economics. Macro as the name implies is concerned with large marketplaces such as an entire country where micro economics is concerned with the dynamics of supply and demand in a small market setting. Both are important to understand if you are a businessman interested in maximizing your profit in a dynamic global marketplace. Not having a good grasp of these concepts is most certainly a recipe for disaster for your business. Having a good grasp of these fundamental concepts while not guaranteeing success, will at least give a business a good chance to succeed.

Producer equilibrium refers to the fact that supply and demand work together to help determine the price and production levels for any given product in a small market. Producers of goods would like to charge the highest possible price for their goods but demand for the product forces their hand to move the price down in most cases. Supply of a product also helps to determine equilibrium in a small market. When supply is low and demand is high, the price for that product will rise to the point that people will still buy the product. When the price reaches a level that people are not willing to pay, the price will drop. Producers will manipulate production levels if necessary to keep prices at an acceptable level where they are making a profit that is satisfactory to them.

These are concepts that ring true whether you are comparing macro or micro economics. Supply and demand in a capitalist society will always determine the value of goods and services. Producers that grasp these concepts and manipulate their production levels to keep prices high or increase production when demand is high and supply is short are most likely to succeed in today's dynamic business climate.
