Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

5 markers that have come up in previous years and so are most likely not to come up in the exam:


income elasticity of demand
subsidy
demerit good
negative externality
normal good
social costs
economies of scale
positive externality
equilibrium price
market failure
price elasticity of supply
market mechanism
composite demand
external cost
scarce resources
factor of production
positive cross elasticity of demand
marginal private cost
derived demand
private goods
--------------------------------------

therefore what could come up:

buffer stock
consumer surplus
negative cross elasticity of demand
demand
supply
diseconomies of scale
division of labour
economic good
excess demand
excess supply
geographical immobility
government failure
indirect tax
inferior good
information failure
joint supply
market failure
merit good
occupational immobility
monopoly
normal good
opportunity cost
normative statement
price elasticity of demand
positive statement
price elasticity of supply
private benefit
producer surplus
public good
specialisation


DONT TAKE MY WORD FOR THIS
THE QUESTION COULD BE SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT OR COULD EVEN BE A REPEAT...WHO KNOWS???

Hi do you think the 25 marker question will be on the housing market?, I have a feeling that it will come up this year the past few years haven't bought it up so they might do so this year

Wouldn't bank on it! Very hard to predict the exact topic but fairly safe to assume that externalities/market failure will be a key concept to at least one of the 25 mark questions.
