Did this the other day as a mock and was a bit confused. The question is worded a bit weirdly. I wrote basically 3 possible supply-side policies that would help to "kickstart" the economy and boost economic growth in order to overcome the stagnation. I can't find the mark scheme for it, but that's how I answered it I don't know if it was right or not.

Just found the MS and Examiner report:
http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...-June-2014.pdf
http://qualifications.pearson.com/co...-June-2014.pdf

My method of answering was right.

Structure as follows:

Definition & Introduction

First point (measure)
Explanation with reference to extract
Evaluation
Link back to question

Second point (measure)
Explanation with reference to extract
Evaluation
Link back to question

Third point (measure)
Explanation with reference to extract
Evaluation
Link back to question

Final conclusion with it depends used with at least two supportive points.

Only do conclusion if you have time. Hope I helpe.d

Yeah that's why I said only do it if you have time . Intros and conclusions are good for cramming in the definitions and extra bits of evaluation if you have spare time at the end.

The point I am trying to make is that you won't get any marks for them. Definitions are only given marks for the first 6 marks not as part of the analysis or evaluation. For 30 marks questions it would be better to give more than 3 evaluations rather than a conclusion that will not be credited.
