My Econ teacher, said it'll most likely be a market failure. However it is not always stated what the market failure is and you are sometimes required to work it out yourself.

I have a feeling that the housing market will come up this year for a like a context, housing market hasn't come up since 2011 I dnt think and agriculture came up in 2014 so no to that, monopolies, unequal income, negative externalities etc came up last year with production and economies of scale, but what I have noticed is that subsidies is always there it will come in one context or the other so make sure to know that back to front, advantages and disadvantages, NHS and health hasn't come up in a while although there was a health question I think in 2013, its really hard to try and predict tbh but just focusing on one section really won't help

I have no idea what mark it would be as I am taking the exam too. HOWEVER, for your welfare diagram on the first page you really should shade in the welfare gain and label the welfare lost. This should pick you up a couple more marks.

Hi guys, would anyone know why the answer to this is B?
Okay so by looking at the table you want the benefits to be higher than the costs so you can discard New housing as the negative externalities are higher than the positive so Housing is out. Then look at the Private benefits and costs you as you want the benefits to be higher railways won't do that so discard that one. So it's between hospitals and roads, with roads the private benefits and costs are the same so it's not exactly beneficial whilst hospitals have a higher private benefit than cost. Therefore hospitals should be the one the government adopts.

Hope that helps

They repeat loads of questions so do past papers from like 2004 until now and you'll see how much repetition there is. That's what I did and i'm averaging around 20/25.
