If all individuals acted or behaved in a similar, stable manner, policy development would be a rather simple matter. However, that is not the case. Sociologists, social psychologists, and scientists have pointed out the difficulties of moving between the “micro” and the “macro”, or from individual behaviour to national policy and programs. Economists have had an equally difficult time; microeconomics and macroeconomics are derived from different theoretical constructs, and no theorist has been able to build a bridge between the two theories.
