Meso-level analysis focuses on the characteristics and dynamics of intermediary structures. In the context of economics, meso-analysis studies intermediary layers of economic activity (industries, or sectors of activity) sitting in between the efficient operations of the firm (micro) and those of sovereign nations (macro). These internal economies rely extensively on the private sector and on market forces for their operations, particularly in industrial sectors such as manufacturing, and construction (Andersson 2003). Interest in mesoeconomics is also large for high-profile areas of service provision such as utilities or telecommunications (Laffont and Tirole 1993).
