    As long as FDI comes up solo do not fear. A lot of scaremongering at college with people saying protectionism will come up

    Protectionism WONT come up. Its always been the last line of intro and has to be with international finacial flows

    Same It was very unclear. I just spoke about credibility leading to stability and then flexibility leading to stability. Unsure if that's correct tbh!
    The 10 markers weren't the clearest especially the second but I think I muddled my way through them

    Thought the 10 markers for exchange rate was awful. What did you put down? I wrote about like in 2003 export led growth ONLY due to demand increase for food..even if exchange rate was high or low = economic growth but then i wrote like if there was no demand for the primary commodities then growth would not occur dispite the exchange rate being low or high...

    I wrote that the undervalued exchange rate increased their international competitiveness as their exports would be cheaper so therfore the increase in exports increased AD thus increased economic gowth

    then i wrote about the improvements in the terms of trade due to the increase in the demand which caused prices to rise then drew AD AND AS DIAGRAM with demand increasing along with the price.


    Then i said the most important factor was the increase in demand for the soya beans and stuff from asian countries so which caused price to rise then allowing them to maximize profits also increasing demand (exports) thus economics growth



    How did you find the exam in general?

    Yeh but it didnt say about what causes economic growth..It said like the COMMENT ON THE EXTENT TO WHICH EXCHANGE RATE AFFECTED exchange rate in 2003.

    I thought it would have been like export cheaper =export led growth however...if it was not for the rising demand for food stuff then they would have never got export led growth therfore the exchange rate did not affect/cause economic growth..it was the rising demand for food..

    i thought the exam was alright but strange in some parts..

    i know then i eloborated why it was effectinve and the extent

    i know and thats why i said that the most important factors was the rising demand in food stuff - export-lead growt blalaala. but the exchange rate did make them more internationally competitive. but the increase in demand for food played a greater part

    then i went into detail

    For the fiscal rules q, I wrote that legitimate framework will make them credible hence lowering bond yields and stability.

    Then I put a flexible framework will allow them to spend and stabilise the economic cycle hence creating stability

    Have I done that wrong?
