    So you've essentially covered all the new A-Level micro content like labour market, behavioural economics etc?

    Using your textbook should be enough really, it's not too complex. Try searching any terms you don't understand, like choice architecture for example, in google or youtube.

    Try companies which have luxury goods maybe oil or luxury cars possibly which have in elastic demand. You could do food producers possibly which do cheap or low quality food as people will want to buy more cheap things. McDonald's may be good?? Pound land??

    Try that. Basically find if their revenues increased during those times and if they did then show a rightward shift in demand, possibly explain inferior goods and negative YED concept. Or you could find companies which I mentioned above which have cut costs during recession, leading to rightward shift In supply! Easier to do first thing though. Good luck ask if u need help or pm me!

    i'm doing a mix really. micro should not take too long to learn so that'll be ongoing. Macro though i will be going on the classes pace, then once micro is learnt, i will carry on with macro i think.
    I'm using econplusdal, both aqa textbooks, the specification,tutor2u and economicsonline.

    a2 macro is not so difficult as its just developing on things you learned in as such as depreciation of currency, you learn about why that may not be good for some countries in the short run/overall. A2 micro is a bit tougher as u need to know specifics and a bit more detailed theory of market structures and firms/consumers which people can easily forget under pressure in an exam!

    Hi.
    I am an undergraduate student majoring in economics, and I am stuck on this homework question.
    I hope someone can help me out with this one.

    A monopoly has two types of customers and is able to charge them the same two-part tariff.
    It knows that Type 1’s demand is Q1 = a1 − bp, and Type 2’s is Q2 = a2 − bp, where a2 > a1. Derive
    expressions for the optimal unit price p and fixed fee T, assuming the monopoly has constant marginal costs
    m and that it is optimal to sell
    a) to both types;
    b) only to Type 2.

    im only in a2 but I'm sure thats pretty much solving equations. Don't think much economics go into that question at all. Consider a1 to = x and a2 to equal a1+x and try and do simultaneous equations perhaps?

    I'm not really sure since we're learning macro from the bare beginning. I'd say December or January maybe.

    Mainly because we didn't get taught macro very well last year, due to our teacher unexpectedly falling ill, resulting in substitute teachers. However macro from AS is needed in A2, with added bits. Both overlap, so it's one really.

    He's still not back to this day unfortunately. We currently have a Law teacher who is "qualified" to teach economics, attempting to teach us, it really sucks haha
