Tutor2u put these as the obvious synoptic topics which have micro/macro to talk about
Nice!

Btw would a reduction in tax to increase incentive be a nudge or a shove?

Taxes are shoves, not nudges

10. How should we answer the longer essay questions? Like a paragraph on macro then a paragraph on micro? or just combine both in all the paragraphs?

((120x2)+(90x1))/3

Price index of x times by weight plus prices index of good y all divided by the sum of weights.
where does 90 x 1 come from?

(Original post by nellythumper)
Well, the way I did it was to work out real GDP per capita in 2005 which was obviously 100/100=1. Then work out real GDP per capita in 2014, real GDP was (200/150)*100 which gave you 400/3. Then divide 400/3 by the population of 120 to get 400/360 which was 1.1111... (recurring). So now its just a percentage change of (1.11111...-1)/1 then *100 to get a percentage and this came out to 11.1111...%. But I would have thought the answer would be exactly 10% if that was one of the options.
I don't understand why they wouldn't give it as an exact answer

That is the weighting of good Y

Yes, but how did you work that out
17. (Original post by nellythumper)
That is the weighting of good Y

Mentioning thr ageing population was one of the best things you could have said in my opinion. The ageing population in Japan is one of the key reasons for their prolonged deflation. Monetary policy is likely to be ineffective in a place like Japan since such reflationary policy is unlikely to work due to the MPC of elderly people being far lower than younger people. Also, the fact that it wasn't mentioned in the extract shows good knowledge of Japan's economy - it's a superb evaluative point. I was surprised at how so many people discarded this factor in determining the effectiveness of interest rates because it's a huge factor, especially in Japan and increasingly in the developed world.
Ty ^_^ hopefully the examiner agrees!
