    not too sure. it could very well be as portfolio investment is related to FINANCIAL assets. i believe bonds may come under that.

    Extract 4 Predictions
    There's really not many options for this extract, it's likely to be question 1 or 2 or 3

    1) comment on the significance of remittances in reducing poverty and promoting economic development (10) (or it could be the same question but instead of comment on, it would be analyse for 6 marks)
    2) comment on whether remittances are more significant than Official Direct Investment (foreign aid in other words) or FDI or Debt and Portfolio investment (definition: financial investment in shares, bonds and other financial securities in a foreign country) for developing countries in promoting development (10)
    3) Distinguish between FDI and debt and portfolio investment (4)
    4) Suggest why India was the largest recipient of remittances (4)
    5) Suggest reasons why Tajikistan receives a higher percentage of GDP in the form of remittances than any other country (4)
    6) Evaluate the consequences of emigration for developing countries (4 or 6)

    Extract 5 potential 20 markers...

    I've looked at all the past five years of f585 questions, and all the 20 markers are one the last sentence of the final paragraph of the introduction. So if this year follows the pattern then it will be:

    Discuss whether reforms to the supply side of the economy are the key to promoting long run economic growth in zambia (20)

    But also, I watched gconomics videos and his two predictions are pretty good too:

    Discuss the challenges to zambia 's long run growth (20)
    Discuss how effective the zambian government has been in promoting long run economic growth (20)

    Ignore my really awful spelling and my awful paragraph I'm actually using voice recorder to type this message what I meant to say is that trade as a percentage of GDP is increasing due to higher integration of global markets through globalisation therefore there is heavy interdependence between economies therefore if trade is a huge part of the GDP it means it is vulnerable to global shocks e.g. the global recession in 2008 it is especially worse when these experts are primary commodities e.g. Zambia is copper and inelastic good because it means as global demand for total revenue will for and therefore X minus M falls and therefore there is a fall in A.D. and total GDP therefore it's not really the best
    Thanks so much! I really couldn't get my head around it all, but this is a great help!

    How is everyone revising for this exam? I really have no idea what I should be doing. When I have asked my teacher he has been very vague, just saying to practice the predicted questions. He has only taught us the topics which are mentioned or alluded to in the extract. Is there no chance of the the other topics coming up??Please help!

    There's a guy on YouTube who has a play list on f585, of you watch the videos where he tells you what to revise you should be fine, his channel is called Econplusdal.

    Also, of you need help on going through all the data that the extracts give you and if you want more in depth (longer videos) information on the extracts then go to gconomics on YouTube

    Not that I've seen no. But you could make up your own, if you think there's a topic on extract 5 that could be discussed for 20 marks

    You only HAVE to use a diagram in the 20 marker though using it in the 10's or others to help answer your question is perfectly acceptable. You can score 20/20 with one diagram though you will most likely end up using two.
