Actually, it stand for requiesat in pace, which is Latin, but kind of means "rest in peace" The acronym has thus been confused with rest in peace.

Just heard about that the other day, and it is totally useless info.... but hey, now you can correct your friends and appear to be educated!

Anyone doing AQA Economics here? Do u guys know anything about the extention papers? My school doesn't offer them but if they r gd i might hv a go anyway (if they look interesting) ... the problem is: is it possible to do it on my own / with little help from teachers?

What do you mean by extention? Advanced Extention Award? It's an interboard thing, I think everyone has to do AQA one. You are supposed to do it without teachers help or additional tutoring, it's more of an indicator of natural ability and interest in the subject (which means reading widely and understanding current events).

I think you can just ask your exams officer in college/school to enter you, and then pay £x to sit it. I want to do the same with Business next year.

I almost stopped coming to TSR, so I would like to hand over all the responsibilities of the societies to Tanusha (she is a leader already). Write down the name of the members you accept and send them to me. I will update the list once in a week

Bricks and mortar, isn't it a building society that specialises in mortgages?
Dotcom companies, I'm guessing these are companies that only exist online e.g. there are no offices with call centres and representatives, so the only way to do business with them is online. Unless it emphasises the "com" bit which is normally an american hosting?

Hi

What happened to your rep? Have you been naughty? :p:

Unit 2 is the multiple choice about government failure, right? First of all learn all your definitions - market failure, government failure, merit/demerit/public goods, etc. So easy to lose these few marks! Secondly, read up on education (e.g. HE funding changes of 2006, the cost of uni rose to 3000 but you can pay back later) and whether you think the government was successful in attracting people into HE. Also study your NHS - always in the news. NHS is obv. regulated b government, it could be more efficient but less affordable if it were independent so is the government doing a good job? Since you mention minimum wage, that and rent ceiling are other ways to regulate free markets. The min wage issue relates to low-skilled jobs so that those who are desperate to get a job wouldn't be exploited. But that menas businesses can afford to hire fewer workers so more workers are unemployed - good for those with jobs (more money) but bad for those out of job (surely they would rather earn £2 an hour than nothing). Also min wage makes it more difficult for UK to compete with newly inustrialised economies like China. So a few issues with that. Etc etc etc

thanks a lot for that info.... really explained well

also another part im stuck on is the concept of a "guaranteed price".... i saw a question in a past paper and was rather confused... any help on that would be really appreciated...


ps... the reason for my red gem is that i was in a debate ... in the debate section ... and those who i was debating where people with 15 green gems... and when i took them out :p: about 3 of em gave me neg reps which tok me down to a red gem :confused: so i havent been naughty :P


and thanks again for answering that question
