    Doesn't really matter in terms of quantity, quality is key! In terms of 10 marks aim to get 2 points max 3 FOR and 3 Against and also a nice diagram!

    20.. go crazy.
    What diagrams could you use for trade.
    Don't knw many..

    I'm not sure if they're looking for diagrams though...pretty much more analysis rather than diagrammatic...unless of course they ask for one

    as for you 20 marker method....ditto.....just vomit economic terms onto the page

    simple supply and demand diagram will do

    increased supply (from integration and liberalisation), shifts supply to the right, prices fall

    also loss of consumer welfare due to tariffs ^^

    Really struggling for evaluation on everything, balanced argument will give you 15 marks out of 20, but you need more to get 20 marks!
    actually struggling for extra 5 marks on everything! Spose elasticities are good

    Trade in terms of diagrams is limited but the ones which I would use specifically are trade creation/diversion ones and also when talking about Exports - AD diagram is sufficient. Also if talking about the long-run benefits of international trade you can use an LRAS as countries are benefiting from lower import prices for improved technology, capital stock, labour migration, and so on...

    If the question was more on development try and use economic theorists as this will gain you top L3 Analysis marks... and maybe trade creation/diversion diagrams

    basically if its sustainable/unsustainable as the extract suggests it is unsustainable for the PIIGS to remain a part of the monetary union....

    Well diagrams, and this may sound ridiculous but it separates you from an english student to an economics one. The question may not directly ask for one, however if you put one in where you can, then stick it in! It'll most likely gain you analysis marks and shows the examiner you do understand the question etc... imo

    Hello

    Can someone help find the benefits of Spain's generous welfare system please .
    Apart from high Consumption, I cannot find anything! :s
    maybe the fact that it creates a multiplier effect? Makes the inequality of the distribution of income less so social and economic consequences of unemployment is lessened... It doesn't make gdp fall too much, AND it doesn't make things like crime increase too much, which is just another thing that needs to be invested in to fix anyways.? lol...not really sure what else

    Its just the new set of trade negoitations for WTO memembers. It has a focus on developing economies and trade liberalisation. I basically continues on from the Uruaguy round.

    It's the current negotiation rounds of the WTO where leaders of countries meet in the aim of reducing trade barriers around the world. The problem is these recently halted in 2008 due to them being able to agree.

    I think one of the main issues was one of tariffs on agriculture products entering the EU.
