    So the reason why the us CA deficit isn't so bad is because they have a surplus in the financial account right?
    Yes +
    - Trade makes up less than 30% of GDP and the USA is relatively closed economy so it doesn't have that much of an impact.

    There have been lots of people who have added to the google docs. It covers the 20 marker. and some other questions. More is being added. Add to it as well. Whatever you add, it will only stick in your memory for longer.

    Does anyone else feel that G Economic's Q3 20 marker video isn't that great in terms of answering the question? He spends a lot of time explaining why supply-side reforms are necessary, using information from the extract extensively, but fails to really examine in depth the benefits/drawbacks of multiple supply side policies. Just my thoughts, maybe I misunderstood the question, but I would definitely not approach the question like that. (I think G Economics is great and have watched all his other videos which are very helpful! Not hating on him!)

    Should we be putting in an alternative such as a monetary policy as Gconomics has suggested or is it not necessary?

    It's not an alternative policy, it's one you will use alongside Supply Side

    Stress the importance of Monetary Policy (expansionary) allowing investment to stimulate both SR and LR growth.

    So should we be putting this into our evaluation and conclusion?

    Yeah my teacher told our class this. In my judgement I'm going to write something like "It's clear that supply side policy alone cannot rectify all of Zambia's problems. In conjunction with monetary policy i.e. lowering interest rates to further encourage domestic entrepeneurship will have a more sustainable and effective impact

    Do we have to have analysed that in our essay as a point or could we just bring it in and mention it in the analysis?

    Not in the main body of the essay since the focus is on supply side. Just bring it in within your judgement at the end I'd say

    Ah okay sweet, so just a sentence in the conclusion to show that you're aware that alongside another policy it would work best.
