Business economic meets these needs of the business firm. This is illustrated in the As regards the scope of business economics, no uniformity of views exists among it can be used to explain Demand Theory or fundamental theorem of. This Study Text has been written around the Fundamentals of Business Economics syllabus. • • • It is comprehensive. It covers the syllabus content. No more, no. To Understand the fundamentals of Business Economics. • To Know whether Economics is a Science or an Art. • To Study the Basic Economic terminologies.
Micro -- the prefix refers to very small things. Macro refers to the larger, to the bigger picture. And so, micro-economics is essentially how actors..
And you hear the words scarce resources a lot when people talk about economics. And a scarce resource is one you don't have an infinite amount of. For example, love might not be a scarce resource. You might have an infinite amount of love. But a resource that would be scarce is something like food, or water, or money, or time, or labor. These are all scarce resources. And so microeconomics is how do people decide where to put those scarce resource, how do they decide where to deploy them.
And how does that.. Macro-economics is the study of what happens at the aggregate to an economy. So, 'aggregate', what happens in aggregate to an economy, from the millions of individual actors. Aggregate economy. We now have millions of actors. And often focuses on policy-related questions. SO, do you raise or lower taxes.

Or, what's going to happen when you raise or lower taxes. Do you regulate or de-regulate? How does that affect the overall productivity when you do this. So, it's policy, top-down.. And in both macro- and micro-economics, there is especially in the modern sense of it, there is an attempt to make them rigorous, to make them mathematical. So, in either case you could start with some of the ideas, some of the philosophical ideas, so of the logical ideas, to say someone like Adam Smith might have.
So, you have these basic ideas about how people think, how people make decisions. So, philosophy, 'philosophy' of people, of decision-making, in the case of micro-economics -- 'decision-making' And then you make some assumptions about it.
Or you simplify it.. And you really are simplifying. You say "oh, all people are rational", "all people are gonna act in their own self-interest, or all people are going to maximize their gain", which isn't true -- human beings are motivated by a whole bunch of things.
We simplify things, so we can start to deal with it kind of a mathematical way. SO you simplify it, so you can start dealing with it in a mathematical sense. So, this is valuable to clarify your thinking. It can allow you to prove things based on your assumptions.
And so, you can start to visualize things mathematically, with charts and graphs and think about what would actually happen with markets. So it's very valuable to have this mathematical, rigorous, thinking. But at the same time, it could be a little bit dangerous, because you are making these huge simplifications, and sometimes the math might lead you to some very strong conclusions.
Conclusions, which you might feel very strongly about, because it looks like you've proven them in the same way that you might prove relativity, but they were based on some assumptions that either might be wrong, or might be over-simplifications, or might not be relevant to the context that you're trying to make conclusions about.
So it's very very very important to take it all with a grain of salt, to remember that it's all based on some simplifying assumption. And macro-economics is probably more guilty of it.
Introduction to Economics: Basic Concepts and Principles
In micro-economics you are taking these deeply complicated things that are the human brain, how people act and respond to each other, and then you are aggregating it over millions of people, so it's ultra-complicated. You've millions of these infinitely complicated people, all interacting with each other.
SO, it's very complicated. Many millions of interactions, and fundamentally unpredictable interactions, and then trying to make assumptions on those, trying to make assumptions and then doing math with that -- that could lead you to some conclusions or might be leading you to some predictions. And, once again, this is very important. This is valuable, it is valuable to make these mathematical models, with these mathematical assumptions for these mathematical conclusions, but it always need to be taken with a grain of salt.

Each chapter is written with CIMA's precise learning outcomes in mind.
It is targeted to the assessment. We have taken account of guidance CIMA has given and the assessment methodology. To allow you to study in the way that best suits your learning style and the time you have available, by following your personal Study Plan see page vii You may be studying at home on your own until the date of the exam, or you may be attending a full-time course.
You may like to and have time to read every word, or you may prefer to or only have time to skim-read and devote the remainder of your time to question practice. It challenges you to consider how you study and gives you helpful hints about how to approach the various types of paper which you will encounter. It can help you focus your studies on the subject and exam, enabling you to acquire knowledge, practise and revise efficiently and effectively.
It will help you to acquire knowledge, practise and revise, efficiently and effectively. Three to twelve months before the assessment Study Text Use the Study Text to acquire knowledge, understanding, skills and the ability to apply techniques. Throughout i-Pass i-Pass, our computer-based testing package, provides objective test questions in a variety of formats and is ideal for self-assessment.
Then attempt the two mock assessments. From three months before the assessment until the last minute Passcards Work through these short, memorable notes which are focused on what is most likely to come up in the assessment you will be sitting. You will be under greater time pressure before the assessment as you may be combining your study with work. There are many different ways of learning and so the BPP Study Text offers you a number of different tools to help you through. Here are some hints and tips: they are not plucked out of the air, but based on research and experience.
You don't need to know that long-term memory is in the same part of the brain as emotions and feelings - but it's a fact anyway. The right approach 1 The right attitude Believe in yourself Remember why you're doing it 2 The right focus Read through the Syllabus and learning outcomes 3 The right method The whole picture You need to grasp the detail - but keeping in mind how everything fits into the whole picture will help you understand better.
In your own words The Introduction of each chapter puts the material in context. The Syllabus content, Learning outcomes and Assessment focus points show you what you need to grasp. These tell you what you are expected to know and are supplemented by Assessment focus points in the text. Yes, there is a lot to learn.
Yes, it is a challenge. But thousands have succeeded before and you can too.
Studying might seem a grind at times, but you are doing it for a reason: to advance your career. To absorb the information and to practise your written communication skills , it helps to put it into your own words. Take notes. Answer the questions in each chapter. You will practise your written communication skills, which become increasingly important as you progress through your CIMA assessments. Draw mindmaps.
Try 'teaching' a subject to a colleague or friend. Try colour coding with a highlighter pen. Write key points on cards. Chapter roundups summarise the 'fast forward' key points in each chapter. Use them to recap each study session. The Quick quiz is another review technique you can use to ensure that you have grasped the essentials. Go through the Examples in each chapter a second or third time. Planning and sticking to the plan are key elements of learning success.
There are four steps you should work through. Step 1 How do you learn? First you need to be aware of your style of learning. What types of intelligence do you display when learning? You might be advised to brush up on certain study skills before launching into this Study Text.
BPP Learning Media's Learning to Learn Accountancy book helps you to identify what intelligences you show more strongly and then details how you can tailor your study process to your preferences.
It also includes handy hints on how to develop intelligences you exhibit less strongly, but which might be needed as you study accountancy. Are you a theorist or are you more practical? If you would rather get to grips with a theory before trying to apply it in practice, you should follow the study sequence on page viii.C is nothing to do with costs.
