    Hey, for the investment 8 marker, I wrote 1 reason about why investment increased - as it did increase between 2009 and 2010 I think. Would I lose marks as the question was about change in business investment, not specifically decrease
    The general trend was that investment was decreasing in that time period stated in the question you will be awarded a maximum of 2 marks I think

    The question, copied directly out of the paper, is 'To what extent do demand-side policies lead to conflicts between macroeconomic objectives?' with no 'in the economy' so that should finish the debating. Sorry I got the wrong idea before, I haven't read the whole thread.
    I see :/ Too bad I was hoping for a miracle xD

    Yes it did, but apart from 2008 to 2009 it was generally no trend. One point was about the decrease from 2008 to 2009 and another point was about the increase from 2009 to 2010. So I just picked points between 2008 and 2013

    The question asked about the period where investment declined, therefore your answer is incorrect

    Guys, when you get to the point where you can't remember what the question was, that's the time to forget about it . What's done is done, just leave it be, it can't be changed and just speculating endlessly about 'is this point valid' won't make any difference. This is in the past, we all have other exams now, lets move on!

    Forgive me but wasn't the 6 marker the only question on question 2 based on investment?

    Ah yes forgive me

    For the first one I'm sure they wanted people to state about them being adjusted for inflation. If you didn't that wouldn't be answering the question, it was focused on 2010 prices with this being the base year.

    Second question I put low investment due to low 'animal spirits' and low profits not allowing them to reinvest. Reckon that'll do?

    Never heard animal spirits, but yes low profits can be a cause but would have expanded more, I put increases in NMW as it is factual and also high corp tax, some people argue that you had to take the recession into the account
