    there's pretty much ALWAYS 1 out of the 2 questions on that

    In fact demand/supply side policies pretty much sums up unit 2

    im guessing you mean in january.

    The 25 markers were:

    Using the data and your economic knowledge, discuss the view that a sustained recovery in the UK economy will inevitably lead to an increase in inflation.

    and

    Using the data and your economic knowledge, assess the view that a reduction in income tax is the best way to improve the performance of the UK economy in both the short run and the long run.

    pretty straight-forward!

    Well it depends if you're talking about the long or short term lol

    Like if you're talking about investment and stuff, that is generally LRAS as it takes a while for the investment to happen etc. Basically the LRAS curve is the PPF of unit 2.

    mobility of labour, price level etc is short run.

    ---

    This is why you can have the SRAS curve beyond the LRAS one. Simply, you could get your workers to work over time etc to boost supply past the (sustainable) long term agg supply level... But this can only be temporary.

    "short" and "long" are the sorta pointers

    Its good to refer to short term/long term in the 25 marker too to get the evaluation marks so they're good things to know.

    lmao no I meant I get confused on whether investment/mobility of labour etc etc affect the short run or long run. I think I'm just confusing myself! But thank you

    LRAS is the long run of something, therefore what happens in the long term. if there was high unemployment for example, the LRAS curve on the AD/AS diagrams would shift to the left because there are lower factors of production (economic resources) being used, the SRAS of high unemployment is that the economy would not be using all of the factors of production efficiently as there is resources (the labour-unemployed) not being used. therefore the SRAS would also move to the left.

    the Long Run Aggregate Supply basically means the economy is producing on the Production Possibility Frontier - being efficient.

    hope this helped and wasn't too confusing

    depends whether you are keynes or neo classical. I use the keynesian model where the AS curve is sloped upwards and signals full employment at its peak, AD curves slope downwards like normal, much easier in an exam to stick to one model.

    I put the same as you. Real incomes are incomes adjusted for inflation. What your peers wrote, is disposable income.
