    Ah i did 6f but i answered the question for 6g idk how, i talked about the MPC being successful at first controlling inflation in 2011 however in 2015 it led to deflation then i just talked about how to resolve it through policies i think i was supposed to answer that for 6g but the financial crisis caught me off guard so i didnt answer it... Would i get any marks, pretty pissed rn lost 20 easy marks which i wouldve got right.

    In the question about deflation and the MPC, I said one of the reasons that they should be concerned is because deflation means that they're not reaching their inflation target of 2%, hope its right.

    Potential growth is all about what you can achieve (AS) so it couldn't of been that therefore i did a shift in AD to the right and labelled all the points.
    For the deflation one i basically did a cost benefit analysis of deflation for example it decreases economic growth, less supply in an eeconomy so there is unemployment and a decrease in consumption and then evaluated each one.
