    Marshal-Turner condition...lol what?

    this revision sheet is heavily flawed in A2 content and definitions are sloppily answered. Would not recommend anyone to use this nonsense. 3/10

    Yeah I did the same and feel the same lol. For the 15 marker and 25 marker I felt like I kept writing the same things about budget deficit. What was your points?

    what happened?
    I did context 2 and half my essay was about what supply side policies could be used rather than demand vs supply policies, think I fixed it after but I chatted ****.

    Also I did essay 2 and started talking about deflation but the data said the uk was NOT in a period of deflation so I ****ed that as well, rushed the other half and then my conclusion was ropey.

    Goodbye A I'm seriously depressed it felt like there was nothing on it I prepared for

    The essay did talk about deflation? The 15 marker said give the causes of inflation. And in the 25 marker, it said the consequences of it being below the target which means it could be deflation...That's evaluation. The questions aren't rigid and you're not obligated to use that information they gave you lol. Dw.

    What did you say for the 25 marker context 1 ?
    Arguments for:
    Managed reduces volatility keeps exchange rate stable and can lead to increased levels of investment, productivity etc
    Can allow uk firms to be more competitive if it is managed above current rate, dependent on ped of imports/exports. Marshall Lerner condition and j curve.
    Arguments against:
    Interest rates still useful, low interest rate encourage consumption and investment, boost AD, less attractive for foreign savers therefore less demand for pounds, depreciates exchange rate possible benefits of exports increasing. However negative interest rates in Europe show that low interest rates may no longer work in reflating debt ridden countries.
    Evaluation:
    Will other countries move to managed rates?
    Is the resources used to manage the rate worth the benefits? Opportunity cost
