i have no idea because cinemas have such high barriers to entry so i put that it may be contestable in the smaller individual cinemas but highly unlikely! i put for that the labour cost per amount of seats sold in a film per time period!
I did labour costs per tickets sold so hopefully we're on the right lines haha, and i did that in the smaller scale the cinema industry would be contestable but on a larger scale it isnt, definitely think i've lost marks in that bit though

A is usually low 40s and a B is usually high 30s, but jan 13 it was 47 for an A, 42 for a B and 39 for a C

For question 3a I spoke about what influences changes in Mrp (mr and mp) and then noted how an increase in either will lead to a higher increase jn demand as employing more workers will lead to higher revenue (obviously I wrote more ... Did anyone go along similar lines???
I messed up this question SO BADLY. Can you explain what affects mrp please just want to see if i went along these lines. I also started talking about other factors but its all wrong now i just didn't have a lot to say about mrp

For the economies of scale question i put that increased capacity means they can screen films for the same price but get more revenue from it so unit costs decrease, does that count? for the other one i just put about marketing contracts i totally blanked

WAIT? on the contestable markets question when it said to reference the source did we have to do so in detail? I think I just referred to it briefly but mostly used own knowledge on the market + common sense?
Ah I'm panicking now....

I did exactly the same as you, I thought it was a simple question of factors that affect MRP and how shifting MRP affects the quantity of labour? don't see what elasticities of supply would have to do with it

I didn't do this question, I did the monopsony one but I might still be able to help - what was the question you did, as in the title?

Nah aslong as reference was made to the case study atleast once then you should be fine, but there was quite a lot of stuff in the case study to suggest the market was contestable.

I did q4 too. But it said in the UK, I wonder if we had to put specific info about the UK

Posted from TSR Mobile
Well yes, according to previous mark scheme to get in the top band of answers we had to "apply" our theories. I just spoke about relative poverty for most of it haha.

I Brought in Lorenz curve, Gini coefficient and unemployment for part a and then limitations of reforming the tax and benefits system (politically mainly) NMW and greater spending on training and education for part b. What did you discuss?

No different to you, although I discussed that regional pay differences with other underlying factors as a cause for poverty in the 15 marker.

LOL yh my progressive taxation answer was basically the June 13 MS although I expanded on it etc.

Did u talk about an alternative policy?
Yes I spoke about an alternative policy, mainly something education and training related so that people can become more occupationally mobile. Leads to them getting a job, earning money etc...

yeah i really struggled to find a 'for' argument for it which is what the question was actually asking!
This for the contestability one?

For the "for" argument i basically put :

-cinema operators were taking advantage of economies of scale which meant they were becoming more productively efficient, and since productive efficiency is a characteristic of a contestable market this shows the market may be described as contestable.
-case study mentioned how more and more multiplex cinema operators were entering the market, suggesting barriers to entry were falling hence the market was becoming contestable as a lack of barriers to entry is a feature.
-Corn exchange was able to remain price-competitive with Vue which is a large cinema firm, suggesting that there was a lack of supernormal profits, as the price was clearly low enough for Corn exchange to remain price competitive. (Not sure about this last one at all, was taking a big gamble)

for the people that did monopsonist essay, for part B I said because the government control the power of trade unions then the existence of trade unions was a type a government inervention (for my AO3) then talked about how this could cause other labour mark failures for my AO4, do you think this would be acceptable or could you only talk about trade unions as being another method?? :/
