I'am Trying to understand the concept of equilibilium, i might be wrong in my concepts please feel free to correct me. I just want to know anyone opinion on this. Is the point of Equilibrium really the most desired point in a market ? In reality to me the most optimal point should be when markets are above equilibrium, where firms can have the profitability to expand and hire employees. Do the mathametics really prove that equilibrium should be the most desired point. It seems to when in robust growth it should be above this. ? So in the 90's of robust growth were we ever in a point of equilibrium, or for that matter whenever in expansion have we ever been in a point of equilibrium for a long period of time ?
