    Who's got this tommorow?

    I'm worried that i haven't revised enough, but otherwise i think i'm ok at economics, i've done every single past paper possible from 1999 to 2007, so i think i am pretty well prepared!

    If anyone has hard questions to ask, ask them here!

    This paper was easy, i thought. Next paper is generally harder and we have to think on spot. On this one, we were already prepared from b4.

    You just need to say direct tax- progressive - fair - lack of incentives - productivity down - can predict how much revenue received etc.

    then indirect - regressive - demerit goods- cant predict revenue - inflation blah

    then overall

    I just wrote it should be direct as you can target higher earners. Indirect tax would mean even single mothers would have to pay the tax etc.

    I had 10 minutes left, so I decided to write that Indirect tax could create poverty in the streets; this would mean tourists would rather go elsewhere. This would be bad for the balance of payments as we would be importing far more than we are exporting, and this would mean huge government debt. This could be the government reduces spending money on the economy, which could lead to a recession. This recession would low consumer confidence... blah blah lol.
