    I was eager to use lower interest rates, but then I thought that everyone knows that the current rate is at 0.5% can it go any lower? So I used high corp tax, and high national minimum wage
    I used that to evaluate. I said that the graph showed fluctuations in investment, which would 'suggest' that interest rates fluctuated. I stated that they have remained at 0.5% for a while now (throughout the timescale in question), which means they may not have actually had such a large effect.

    Wait, so if it is like that, you can still say something like decrease in tax means high employment but conflict with BoP right?
    Taxes? Wait what? The question was on demand side policies, you know that right?

    Decrease in tax is fiscal policy, which is in demand-side policy?

    How about you ?
    I wrote decrease in income tax increases consumption then AD then employment. Say it will cause inflation and current account deficit.
    Decrease in interest rates mean depreciation in exchange rate. Improve current account but may cause demand pull inflation.
    Quantitative easing means lower interest rates -> more investment -> econ growth but pollution
    These are my KAA points.
    Do you think they all seem valid?

    Was the question about the conflicts created by demand side policies or the macroeconomic conflicts by demand side policies? Because I did the latter....

    If so, would I still score something okay? I evaluated demand side policies conflicts with inflation, balance of payments and the environment...

    They are all alright in my opinion. The housing prices did scare me at first when I glanced at it, but then it was alright too.
    Hope they will be all fine, unless I made some stupid mistakes

    for question 1 the 30 marker

    definition of demand side policies and list of marco objectives this usually gets you 6 marks.
    then i sed if they used contractionary fiscal this could effect unemployment and economic growth
    then i sed however to meets the objectives of inflation and b of payments
    using expansionary fiscal will conflict with inflation and b of payments

    then i sed using contractionary monetary this will effect unemployment and growth
    however it meets low inflation and b of payments
    expansionary monetary effects inflation and b of payments but meets low unemployment and growth

    then i sed this all depends on the situation in the current economy in the uk and how govt have to trade off between objectives which is more important low inflation or high growth

    anyone get something like this?

    Nah it was how demand side policies would LEAD to macroeconomic policies so you would have explain the policy and state which macroeconomic objective it fulfilled and then say which it conflicted then evaluate...
