  1. They are nearly all applicable.
    You and I will likely work more with higher wage rates (micro). A country's quantity of labor supplied will increase with higher wage rates (macro).
    I receive some consumer surplus when I buy jelly beans (micro). The consumers of a country collectively get some surplus with all the aggregrate goods and services they consume (macro).
    You and I have opportunity costs (micro), a country, collectively, has opportinity costs (macro).

    And on and on.
