    Lol the way this thread has turned into an argument. People have their own opinions so let them be. I suggest you guys lay this off.

    I don't even know where this guy came from. This thread was so productive over the weekend.

    I'm sorry on behalf of ServantOfMorgoth for ruining this thread

    According to ServantOfMorgoth these are not "opinions", these are 'facts'

    People have to learn to face facts in order to do better. The only reason people go blank in exams is when they don't know their work very well. You're telling me that of you your work to a T and then you sit and can't remember anything for 1.5+ hours? That doesn't make any sense. You can argue from any angle you want but I'm right.
    People can go blank for different reasons. I got an A in an AS standard maths exam, and in my recent C1 paper got all the questions right besides one. Why did I get that one wrong? I thought 16+5 was 11, not 21. Does that mean I don't know 16+5, or does that mean my mind went blank?

    I said:
    Monetary:
    - reduce base rate
    Evaluation: interest rates were in-effective following 2008 due to poor confidence, leading to the introduction of QE e.g Extract A: 0.5%, near deflation...
    - QE
    Evaluation...
    Fiscal:
    - Government Spending
    Evaluation...
    - Reduce Taxes
    Evaluation...
    Pretty much exactly what I wrote! Didn't write it in the context of uk/ Japan/ EU but I mentioned that confidence in 2008 was low because of mass unemployment, I mentioned the EU cutting interest rates by 5 percentage points and I also had an evaluation that said banks in 2008 were facing financial difficulties so they may not simply have lowered interest rates just because of expansionary monetary policy? Mentioned something about northern rock being nationalised also lol hahaa

    Benign deflation occurs when, for example, oil prices drop and make production cheaper- usually goes hand-in hand with economic growth. It's not significantly damaging is all you really need to know.
    I might need to consider these questions in that case!
    Hey thanks for letting me know this yesterday, I saw the 15 marker just now and remembered what you said about benign deflation!

    As my economics teacher says: 'Economics is like chlamydia, you've either got it or you haven't' (I hope no one is offended by this)

    I'm sure you are better than you think - Wait until you get your results in the coming months!

    Well, I wouldn't have remembered it if you didn't suggest oil prices as a topic. It was a team effort.

    Same, I'm supposed to be one of the 'best in class' but then I see some of the geniuses on here...

    But then again, I guess the people who go on TSR a lot are the people who actually make an effort and care about their improving grades.

    Adding wrongly is not equivalent to going blank. Going blank implies that you have no recollection of the material required to do the question.
