    Macroeconomics is the study of how an entire economy—the market or other systems that operate on a broad scale—behaves. It is a subfield of economics that is taught in universities. Macroeconomics is the study of economic phenomena that affect the entire economy, such as inflation, price levels, the rate of economic growth, national income, gross domestic product (GDP), and changes in the labor force participation rate.

    In contrast to microeconomics, which is more concerned with the decisions made by individual actors in the economy, macroeconomics is concerned with the performance, structure, and behavior of the overall economy (like people, households, industries, etc.).

    In my opinion is that tracking macroeconomic factors is an essential part of company decision-making, particularly at the strategic level. There are various aspects to consider, the most popular of which are the gross domestic product (GDP), national income (national income), employment levels, and inflation. Therefore, macroeconomic is definitely a good indicator of business performance.
