    This is a Unit 1 OCR question.
    Define subsidy, explain how a subsidy works, draw the subsidy diagram showing how the subsidy increases consumption and moves us closer to the social optimum. Then explain three difficulties with a subsidy as your evaluation. Conclude with how successful a subsidy is likely to be in this case.

    Thanks mate. Just curious would this be a balanced argument? (Both sides advantages and disadvantages? )

    Yes as long as you use the diagram and explanation to say how the subsidy will encourage consumption and then say what the disadvantages of subsidies are.

    For F581 OCR it will require key words included to merit L3 such as reducing underconsumption and leading to greater allocative efficiency
