    Pretty sure it was about this as they are substitute goods, i just evaluated talking about consumer preferences brand loyalty to renting rather than buying a house
    Phewww, that's good stuff. I spoke about the fact that it was short term and some other stuff from the extract. I was worried about all this subsidy talk.

    Well when I mean waffle I mean I had valid points but nowhere near detailed enough. Probably Band 3.
    The mark won't matter if the UMS adjustments are high

    The 10 mark question was fine it was just about XED substitutes

    20 mark question f was about subsidies for mortgages affecting the demand for housing. One the other hand, the inelastic supply was really the problem for housing allocation and whilst the government intervention was increasing the demand, they should have increased supply due to figure 1 and 2. The time lag as well with extract A evaluation. You could talk about there being an excess in demand/shortage in supply. The government turned to positive externality market failure into a government failure
    Sounds about similar to what I wrote too! I wrote about XED briefly for the 10 marker and proceeded to explain why the rental markets won't be affected because of situations where people simply can't afford a mortgage or when a foreigner on a work permit will choose to rent over buying a house because it is economically not feasible.

    For the 20 marker, I wrote about the subsidies on the mortgage and how it could actually cause prices to increase because of the increase in demand. There is more equality as more people can get on the property ladder and consumer surplus potentially increases. It could also increase labour productivity as workers are more incentivised to save for a mortgage since they are receiving help. However, subsidies on mortgages means that even credit unworthy individuals could get loans and this could result in a replay of the subprime mortgage crisis if people default on their loans. And for evaluation, I used government failure to explain!

    To be honest I waffled my way through the essay questions, with a random application now and then to make it seem like I knew stuff.
    Yeah, but the 10 marker was about XED and I talked about subsidies :') I guess I didn't read the extract as thorough as I should of.

    I didn't mention public goods for the second 20 marker, just positive externalities of flood defences. Will I get 0 marks?

    Why didn't you mention public goods? I'm not too sure then to be honest.

    It didnt seem like there would be enough to talk about for public goods at the time and I was rushing.

    Wow that was a tough paper. Harder than I imagined it would be. I didnt even have enough time to answer aall the questions. I mean I started from Section B and I think I wrote too much for the 6 marker and I wrote about 2 pages and a half for the 20 marker. I missed out a 3 marker in Section A and I rushed through the multiple choice questions. And how exactly are you suppose to evaluate the price mechanism?? Ugh, I really hope the boundaries are fair.

    I talked about the functions and then evaluated saying that PES and PED could change the expected shifts in price, demand, supply and quantity demanded and supplied more or less than was expected. I think I wrote some more stuff but honestly I think my brain is trying to block out the horrible memories :/

    To me, that sounds like a pretty strong answer. I couldn't think straight after the weird wording of the specialisation question and put something about regulations but I don't know if that's right because that would restrict the amount of water that could be extracted?

    You could have mentioned it briefly in the beginning by defining what it is, then apply it to flood defences ans say why they're public goods. Make a point about the effects of flood defences on communities and housing. Make a point about housing and how it would affect the communities. Evaluate by thinking of short term and long term, opportunity cost, etc... But if you didn't have the time then don't worry. I feel sick after that exam tbh.

    Do you mean production costs? but yes I used taxes too and explained how this increases costs of production and thus reduces extraction of water! Internalises the externality

    sameee i put ndirect taxes such as VAT on flowers, but i said so that govt could use the revenue from that to reduce damages to fish stock, hence reducing external costs for workers as well

    I don't even know what to feel.....it wasn't great but it wasn't horrible, I'm just worried about my points for the 20 marker. I wrote a lot but I'm not sure if there's enough depth. The other questions were alright I think. Definitely a very hard paper though, heart kind of sank a little when I saw it was housing market lol

    SAME LOL. I think I'll do better in my other subjects though so. I want a B in this but it's not looking likely after that.

    I did say most of that but for externalities so hopefully I won't have screwed it up too badly, thanks for the reassurance!
