If I am correct, micro and macro reffer to:
Micro (As in small): Refers to the smallest details for success.
Macro (As in extense): Is from a much more general point of view.
Both of these can be included in either economy or military (Assigning villagers SPECIFIC tasks like chop THAT tree instead of just gather wood from wherever you want.
Or military like instead of just charge attack from the front, you move to the right, you to the left, and we close in on them with the archers running around and sniping them off while they retreat.
