    Can someone reply??
    I mentioned monetary policy and evaluated saying that interest rates could impact the investment of firms etc making supply side ineffective.....actually i don't think i wrote it like that but i should've!

    you won't get marked down for other policies if you related it to some extent to supply side

    This discussion seems endless haha.
    However, I think that with or between does not make a huge different though, doesn't it?
    And yeah, I have seen the question being repeated in economics. The housing one today was actually similar to one past paper I don't remember, and the housing one in Unit 1 is similar with one in the past paper as well so...

    Yeah haha.
    I think to be honest, they are very similar and students MAY be given the benefit of the doubt.
    However, the question was 100%
    ''To what extent do demand-side policies lead to conflicts between macroeconomic objectives'' (30 marks)
    - Confirmed by my Economics teacher and all my mates haha.

    Yeah they are pretty similar, I don't think it hugely matters anyway. Or if so, not that much.

    hoping for 2 marks at least for defining business investment, hadn't a clue what they were asking for.

    You wouldn't lose marks for only talking about expansionary monetary and then briefly mentioning contractionary fiscal would you?

    It is about the 30 marker on question 1; some argue confidently that the question was to what extent do demand side policies conflict with macroeconomic objectives while others say also confidently that it was to what extent demand side policies caused conflicts between marcoeconomic objectives.

    I already gave up on that it was with, but seeing people coming on here saying that it was with, gives me false hope....

    Sorry about the double post.

    Man I went with 'with' but I lost my cool in the end of the exam when I realized right at the end that it said between and the first instinct I had was to go on here to check if it truly said between. So my nerves were really a wreck by the end, or I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news and it was between.

    But actually, I think the way to tackle the question is more or less similar.
    Just ask your teacher again to make sure.

    yes it was 'evaluate the use of supply side policies to increase the level of real output'

    productivity can be mentioned.

    My three points were : 1. increase in government expenditure on healthcare and training schemes 2. decrease in corporation and income tax 3. privatisation and deregulation

    I must disagree though on that sadly.

    If it was 'with' you merely state what demand side policies do and then assess the macroeconomic objectives which it harms such as inflation and then evaluate the extent.

    However, with between you also state what demand side policies do, but then you for example talk about how inflation harms the current account for example.

    This is the foundamental core difference which will cost one side on this and I think it is me a **** loads of marks.

    Please tell me you disagree me if you see it a other way...

    In my 30 marker Q1, I said why my policy would increase AD and how it would conflict with another objective, but I didn't say why it may not conflict with the objective. Do I get capped at like 18/30?????
