    I'm looking to buy some Revision Guides/Book for the courses which i am doing, my teachers haven't really suggested any books yet so i was wondering if one you guys can help me find some revision books.

    Could someone suggest a good Revision Guide/Books for OCR Economics A2. These particular units -

    OCR Economics A2: Unit F585: The Global Economy
    OCR Economics A2: Unit F584: Transport Economics

    Would be much appreciated if you can provide links on where to get the books from.

    Thanks

    There is an A2 OCR book that my teacher bought from Heinemann called OCR Economics A2 by Colin Branford, Susan Grant and Stephen Walton:

    ISBN: 9780435692216

    There's another specific one for Transport economics called Transport Economics: 4th Edition by Colin G. Bramford

    ISBN: 9780435332341

    I hope you have found this useful - sorry these aren't links but the ISBN numbers should make it easier to find.

    Hiya, a firm with marker power can raise prices because if they have big market share etc, they are likely to be seen as reliable and the most well known firm, plus brand loyalty means people might wanna stick with them even if they raise their price, cos they know they'll get a good service etc.

    I guess it depends on the market structure ie you might have a big firm in an oligopoly who raise their price, and despite brand loyalty and a good reputation, they might lose customers because the other firms are so similar and are still cheaper. But yeah, those are a couple of ideas! Hope it helps. xx
