    Unfortunately, you fell into the trap. The answer is £200, it explicitly says they do not change the price.
    Thats what i thought, if they didn't change it then why give us the new one, so I just ignored it

    well that was annoying, i got 5.3% for germany's unemployment, then for how UK and Germany will be affected, i put large amount of exports go to chinese consumers, so if economic growth slows, less demand for UK and German goods
    Also i screwed up the exchange rate question as i accidently shifted S curve, put i labelled the y and x axis correctly and labelled D and S so the examiner may reward 2 marks?

    Yea im sure it said the cost of the good ($300) stayed the same but the exchange rate changed, therefore what use to be £200 at (£1=$1.50) is now £250 because the exchange rate changed to £1=$1.2.

    for Q17 20 Marker i talked about use of fiscal policy in cutting taxes to increase disposable income for Firms and consumers, therefore firms are able to use disposable income to grow, buying a new factory etc showing a shift in LRAS to the right which would require labour which would therefore reduce unemployment. also disposable income would mean consumers spend more, giving firms more revenue etc to grow but the extent would be if the economy is running at full capacity, because any rise in AD caused by growing investment and consumption would cause demand pull inflation. and also the Marginal propencity to save for firms and households.

    I made two comparisons. One that Germany traded more, so more reliant, and one that UK got more investment so would be effected. Wouldn't have made a bad 20 marker that tbh

    possibly fall in UK and German exports, i put rise in unemployment as the rate of demand for UK and german goods slowed down?

    i thought the 10 Marker was also relatively straight forward, required no diagram and just wanted to talk about how a cut in direct tax would increase investment (more disposable income for firms and consumers) and therefore likely to invest to expand there wealth, extent also depended on the Marginal propensity to save, and also opportunity cost in reduction in tax revenue and possibly less investment through government subsidies and grants

    because in 2015 the US federal reserve bank increased interest rates, therefore causing more households and firms to save (to gain revenue of interest)
