A study of the entire economy in terms of the total amount of goods and services produced, total income earned, the level of employment of productive resources, and the general behaviour of prices.

Until the 1930s most economic analysis concentrated  on individual firms and industries. With the GreatDepression of the 1930s, however, and the development of the concept of national income and product statistics, the field of MacroeconomicS began to expand. The policy goals of the discipline include economic growth, price stability, and full employment.
