    The shape is always the same I believe, you shouldn't lose marks for curving it more than another graph, just don't do a straight line!
    but inflation depends on it.. like the steeper it is the more inflation is caused when AD is increased.. i wondered what made it so steep the higher u go

    The labour market tightens so you need to attract workers with higher wages, hence the steepness due to increased costs

    Why, do you need 90-100 UMS?

    Tips would be just to revise, stay calm, make sure you know it. Plan & structure your essay. And be clued up about recent events so you can include them to strengthen your argument or analysis.

    I do. I don't give it to strangers though. Nothing personal and I hardly use msn messenger.

    It is possible.

    For exam technique:

    Introductory paragraph - Definition and briefly outline three/four major arguments you will be discussing.

    Paragraph 2 : First argument and then analyse it too. Point out the flaws in the argument.

    Paragraph 3 : Same.

    Paragraph 4 : Same.

    Evaluation : Sum it up, don't add any new arguments. Maybe throw in your own opinion on the matter if you want.

    If you can use real life examples to back up your arguments. Use data from the information given. Use diagrams to help you explain a concept (but a diagram isn't sufficient on its own) make sure you talk the examiner through the diagram.
    I think it's a good idea to add in any new arguments in the conclusion because we looked at a model answer in class and this girl had added new ideas in the conclusion and the examiners had given her 25/25 so there's no harm in doing that

    Conclusion is the summing up of the arguments in the essay. The arguments and analysis of the arguments should be in the main body of the essay.

    Yeah I know, you should aim to keep all your ideas in the main body of the essay but in case you do forget something, it's a good idea to just add it in whilst you're summing up?

    One question is always based on improving the macroeconomic performance and the other usually focuses on one issue improving the performance..

    The state of the domestic economy. This isn't essential though. It's something you should be keeping up with during the course of study.

    You don't know his circumstances. He may need 90-100 UMS for survival. Very unlikely but still a possibility.

    it's the whole question, and it's from the jan 09 paper

    Which one of the following is most likely to lead to a fall in aggregate investment?
    A A reduction in the level of unemployment
    B An increase in spare capacity in the economy
    C A reduction in the average level of interest rates
    D An increase in aggregate demand

    C A reduction in the average level of interest rates
    D An increase in aggregate demand
    It's B because firms will be more likely to expand production by using the spare capacity because they have spare capacity, they can bring in capital such as machinery they are not using. It would pointless buying new capital when you have capital which is not being used just sitting there.

    Also the questions say aggregate investment not aggregate demand. That confused me when you initially asked the question.
