    Why have you included so much stuff that's irrelevant to AS economics?
    Because it isn't irrelevant. Economics is Economics. The idea was to give you guys some additional points to perhaps surprise the examiners and achieve great results.

    Are they more centred towards macro as it is involved with fiscal and monetary policy, or can you use some of the fiscal points if you were talking about say a tax?

    I'm not sure I understand your question correctly. Tax adjustments are part of Fiscal Policy (Macro).

    You might be referring to taxes as in for correcting externalities or something in which case not all of the points mentioned above would apply. You could argue that taxes on pollution for example would have a macroeconomic impact by cutting into corporate profits, and therefore could give them greater incentive to offshore production to other countries. This would have a negative impact on the domestic economy (problems associated with multi-nationals leaving). Hence, although the tax may reduce the rate of pollution, these benefits must be balances against the wider impacts. I stress that these points are all assuming everything else remains constant.

    It is irrelevant, it's like providing caculus methods to someone about to sit GCSE maths

    If a housing market question does come up - the possible government interventions could be ,
    Subsidy to the housing market - reduce costs and therefore welfare increase in the long run
    max price on rent - however this creates excess demand which is not productively efficient

    or Min price in order to reduce the amount that is demanded ( excess demand ) and therefore leads the economy with excess supply however housing is relatively price inelastic and consumer have a high propensity to consume therefore would take out mortgages in order to buy houses
    or we can reduce this excess supply by implementing a buffer stock scheme that buy up the houses....
    and now instead of being privately rented properties , its under the governments supervision and control.

    general evaluation points is that ...time lag , magnitude

    however please bear in mind that in one of the 2004 paper there was a question on for or against housebuilding should be removed . And therefore would be unlikely to ask a question on houses all together . I reckon it will be on something like oil prices of NHS obesity

    This is probably a cliche but just be prepared for anything - Geoff Riley says that the best students will be able to respond to any question and its not like the examiners expect prior knowledge of the particular market in question - this is after all AS Economics, not AS Housing Market Studies.
