    Have a feeling the macroeconomic stuff won't come up as a lot of that (inflation/monetary) came up in January.
    Likely something to do with evidences: C, E and F and possible A for a smaller question. Perhaps something on subsidies for buses/roads as merit goods/road pricing
    really?! Damn, I dont get the E and F ones, I haven't managed to find much info about it..:/
    But yeah..I think externalities and subsidies and public transport too..
    do you think they will do Fuel alternatives as well? Like evidence H?

    Evidence H very unlikely as they did a lot on it last time. Evidence E and F are commenting mainly on the private benefits of cars but also how it divides society (link to inequality).

    Guys what should I know about government intervention?
    What I Know is that:
    1. Government intervenes to correct market failure
    2. To protect consumers from monopoly like powers
    What are the drawbacks of govt. intervention?
    How do I apply to case study?
    What are the roles for OFT and CC and EU CC in road transport???
    How does inequality contribute to market failure and how does providing bus services lead to equity???]\
    WILL GIVE A +REP!

    30 markers meant how effective are like policies, such as subsidies, taxation and national road charging to correct market failure associated with the use of vehicles, e.g. emissions, pollution, inequality??????????????
    20 marker was ****!
    10 markers meant smth like how rising fuel prices contribute to inflation above target?? Maybe like, greater prices, such as imposition on trucs and diesel would increase their costs and hence passed on at higher prices to consumers??
    Supply side policies are the government measures to affect efficiency and productivity of labour, e.g. diesel cheaper to trucks??
    Fiscal are the general taxation and how it affect demand??
    Why trucs are negative externalities? Because they are still vehicles. Therefore, thus mean that they produce congestion and great amount of emission, especially particulates, hence affecting health and environment?
