    On the 20 mark question it talked about the microeconomic effects.

    I defined government intervention and then i went straight into my points.

    In point 1 i talked about an extension in demand as supply is increasing, i applied it to the housing market and said that they will have more wealth and evaluated saying has inelastic supply so demand won't change much

    In point 2 i talked about an increase in revenue for firms, i drew another demand and supppy diagram and said it will lead to more investment.I evaluated saying saying 10000 new houses isn't that much.

    In point 3 i talked about increased employment as the 10000 new houses will need building which i said will cause more revenue in an economy, which will be multiplied in the circular flow. I evaluated saying that in the short run there will be no work but in the long run there will be very little and it will only benefit cambridge and not the whole economy.

    Conclusion i talked about short run and long run and explained it in relation to all my points and evaluations

    Have i done it right?

    It wasn't microeconomic objectives it was effects. This basically meant what would government intervention cause in the housing market. I.e. increase demand, revenue, employment, living standards.

    No? it said something along what microeconomic objectives effect the housing economy with government intervention.
    i may be wrong but im pretty sure the main question was based around microeconomic objectives. i talked about economic agents and how it would affect them.

    Did you do question f. I did that one and i just had to talk about the effect of government intervention, not the intervention itself because it didn't ask for that.

    God we talked about completely different things, well i suppose it was an open question. I just talked about increased employment, higher firm revenues and extension in demand for my initital points then explained them.
