The computer power required in the simulation of mutually cooperating systems in the physical sciences is huge. Therefore, it is common to simulate one system and treat others as parameters or environmental conditions to the simulated system. Macro-Micro Interlocked (MMI) simulation framework has been proposed to simulate such cooperating systems. In this paper, we study the feasibility of applying this framework on the simulation of macro-micro economic model. This simulation allows us to observe the system's behaviour at the macro and micro levels concurrently. Policy changes at the macroeconomic level may affect the behaviour of the entities at the microeconomic level. Similarly, the behaviour changes at the microeconomic level may affect the macroeconomic system. We implement an MMI simulation library suitable for execution on a cluster of PCs. At this early stage, the experiment shows a promising result which provides us with a foundation to experiment with a larger model.
