Macroeconomics is a branch of economics dealing with the aggregate economy as a whole, rather than individual markets.

Macroeconomics (from the Greek prefix makro- meaning "large" and economics) is a branch of economics dealing with the performance, structure, behavior, and decision-making of an economy as a whole, rather than individual markets. This includes national, regional, and global economies.

Macroeconomics examines economy-wide phenomena such as changes in unemployment, national income, rate of growth, gross domestic product, inflation and price levels.

With microeconomics, macroeconomics is one of the two most general fields in economics.
