    I've just been on the EU's website Attachment 219233 and it says that membership of the EU is dependant on adhering to the aims economic and monetary union.

    Attachment 219234

    And then the economic and monetary union includes the Maastricht treaty..?

    The Maastricht criteria is for the admission in the eurozone which any EU member can join the single market if they fulfil the criteria like stable currency in the ERMII etc. It says in the case study in extract 1 that Greece failed to meet the criteria however Greece is already a EU member. It's for economies wanting to enter the single market which is the euro (eurozone). Re read extract 1 especially the last sentence, it is a bit confusing at first.

    That actually made me think and I googled it, there was this website called economics help that came up with policies like welfare benefits, higher pensions, progressive income taxes and minimum wages

    it would depend on the question I guess, I've always found rewording the question in the conclusion helps answer it properly
    E.g q) discuss the extent to which Estonia are reaching their goals for sustainable development, a conclusion could be .... As disgussed, Estonia are clearly behind the rest of the eu and their aim to be in the top 5 economies, but the future looks prosperous with their balanced budget, lack of debt and stong forcasted growth. To conclude, at the current time the extent to which Estonia are achieving their goals is pretty low, however their goal is for 5-10 years in the future in which there is likely to be a much higher extent to achieving these goals?!?
    got me 93 ums points in work and leisure tho I'm finding this module a lot lot harder to wrap it all up :/

    I did this exam in january and I got 16 marks for the 20 marker after receiving my paper back, I used the same structure I used for the first two exams (F581/2) but you need to write a LOT more, the conclusion should also be longer. I think you should concentrate on the 'comment on' questions, those ones are where most people lose the most marks because they're more fixated on the last essay question, they're worth 10 marks too, which is a lot! I hope this was helpful! (:

    In my essay structure, I would have definitions of key economic terms my introduction then you are ticking the ao1. Then I would analyse the benefits and drawbacks as the main body by including graphs and including information from the case study. Then you are ticking the ao2 and ao3. As my conclusion I would comment the analysis and include the factors that is would depend on. Then you would tick the ao4. Be aware that in the 20 marker, there are at least 10 marks for evaluating that's including. My main tip would be if you have a look at all the mark schemes and that the examiners look for in the essays I hope this helps

    Could you use the fact their previous fiscal austerity measures implemented during the time of recession helped a strong recovery and overcoming a large budget deficit wasn't an immediate obstacle, allowing the government to focus on implementing policies to promote economic growth?

    Then for my second reason probably estonia's strong ability to attract fdi due to low unit labour costs an a 0% tax on re-invested help promote growth

    Both sound like decent points also could mention the inflation drop of 12%~0.2% which would hugely increase intention competitiveness which will raise we ports hence raising growth, as mentioned in the bit bellow the inflation graph
