    For the essay, I wrote about how supply side policies can be used to help reduce the current account deficit and help move in to a current account surplus as training and education can help train workers to have a more skilled labour force. I also put how subsidies could help to lower the cost of production. Moreover, I linked it to the case study, as the Turkish people said that 'Supply Side' policies could be used to reduce the Current Account Deficit.

    I then evaluated and justified my reasons.

    Would I get A04 marks for what I have put?
    Did you put how it would benefit the economy???

    Yeah mate, I did and I gave valid reasons.

    Post a basic outline of the essay you put as it's hard to give an estimate mark but it sounds like you'll have a fairly high mark from it.

    Definition of Current Account
    Definition of Current Account Surplus
    Definition of Current Account Deficit

    Forgot diagram :// (people say I can still get full marks without a diagram)

    Benefits of having a current account surplus (x3 with justification)

    Drawbacks of having a current account surplus and benefits of having a current account deficit (x3 with justitication)

    Alternative method: Supply side policies (x2 advantages and disadvantages)
    Short term and long term impacts of having a current account surplus/deficit

    It depends on... (the amount of surplus in the current account)

    Sustainability of having a long term current account surplus

    Evaluation with justification.

    Reduce consumption, AD shifts in/decreases, price level drops

    Depends upon size of increase in saving, ceteris paribus etc.

    yh that exactly what i wrote, my friend talked about cost push inflation on the evalutation part, he said he mentioned that if firms reduce their prices then this means production costs will increase..... which leads to cost push inflation, but not sure if that is right

    What did people get for the multiplier effect question about south korea and turkey
    It said for South Korea that consumers spend less of their disposable
    income or something like that so I said this means the multiplier effect is greater in Turkey.

    What did you say for Turkey experiencing rapid economic growth I talked about government spending which has significantly increased output and moreover has been spent on the labour force especially women so therefore the quality of labour has increased increasing investment on workers which increases consumer income as they then have a more disposable income consequently this causes a tripling multiplier effect as government spending investment and consumer expenditure have all increased leading to rapid AD shift to the right and therefore rapid growth.

    Correct I got the same and I know a lot of people who got that and it is weird because I am not normally good at the maths in economics sometimes you have to scout out for the relevant info in the text. What did you put for the economic growth question in Turkey. Is what I put above similar or has points similar to yours?
