    well this never came up so that was hours of my life i wont get back :indiff:

    thank goodness this is nearly over lol although i say that but have nothing planned for after a levels, trying to apply to jobs whilst revising was too stressful and was just rejected from everything anyway so idk what im gonna do about that

    tbh i acc feel quite proud of myself, 6 hours under invigilator supervision was quite intense and i was worried about it but we got there in the end. Idk how the exams went really, hopefully they were good and i found them both ok but i can't tell really, all ik is that i tried my absolute hardest and i can say that hand on heart :yes:

    why has this year been so difficult though, does everyone find it this hard or is it just me? cos everyone else seems to go about the picture of composure and elegance. Then again from the outside i probably look composed to (elegance isnt possible :rofl:)

    feel like this was embryonic cavy at the start of year 12:

    Then year 13 happened...

    Spoiler:

    minus the pink dress

    yes that was basically an excuse to use some gifs




    onwards to the next and final exam, theoretically this should be easier as there is less content for it, oh and some sleep would be nice since i was in some half awakened semi conscious dream state with the same words echoing in my head for the majority of the night

    Keynesianism was the theories elaborated by JM Keynes between the Wars to fight the economic crisis of the 1930s. It supposes a strong public spending during economic crisis so consumers (=demand) still have money to spend, thus companies still hire people to run the factories and the negative effects (principally unemployment) of the crisis are contained. It advocates a generous welfare state (especially unemployment benefits), and often massive infrastructure projects that require a lot of manpower (in order to reduce unemployment). These theories were dominant after 1945, especially with Labour governments (Clement Attlee created the British welfare state), but also influenced the Tories.

    However, these policies became ineffective to counter the economic crisis of the 1970s, which combined both high unemployment and inflation (called "stagflation" ). Demand policies did not work because world economies had become more open and British companies were not competitive in the global market. When the state gave benefits, people bought products manufactured abroad. For example, in the 1970s people bought walkmans, pocket radios, VCRs, etc. which were made in East Asia (especially Japan). So, public money was "wasted" on foreign goods and the UK had large trade and budget deficits, funded by printing banknotes, thus fuelling inflation.

    With Margaret Thatcher (and Reagan in the USA) a new set of economic policies were used (although they had already been experimented before), such as Monetarism. It is another economic doctrine, which was designed by Milton Friedman (US economist, leader of the Chicago School). It advocates the limitation of public spending and money printing in order to reduce inflation. Friedman and his followers also said that companies (who make supplies) must be favoured so they can produce goods and services at a cheaper cost than their foreign competitors. Therefore, they pushed for economic deregulation, reducing taxes, cutting public spending, fighting the unions, etc. anything to cut the labour cost.

    So in short:
    Demand=favouring people (or consumers)=Keynes=post-war governments (especially labour).
    Supply=favouring businesses=Friedman=Thatcher+ Reagan.
    thank you josb this is still useful 5 months later, always learn this then forget it after exams and have to relearn it
