    I'm not panicing at all. However this is only exam in 9 days (last friday, then next monday)!

    My philosophy in exams since the January modules has been,

    Leave no stone unturned in revision,
    then
    Trust your training.

    When we talk about FDI are we showing it as a possible outward shift in the PPF or do we show it as in increase in AD and then perhaps an increase in AS which would reduce any inflationary pressures?

    externalities can be defined as a external cost of benefit from an economic transaction that affects a third party not directly involved in the transaction. Its also the divergence between private cost and social cost.

    Its realated to this case study cos it concerns pollution which is a negative externality. The case study concerns the use of regulation as a means of controlling the externality. But there are other methods like taxation.

    Im panicking like hell for this one. I did do in june market failure so i know my stuff on externalities but its just that this exam is worth 120 bloody marks.

    Does every know what timings we should have the exam. ie how long to leave for the each question.

    Q1(a) is 6 marks
    Q1(b) is 9 marks
    Q2 is 10 marks
    Q3 is 15 marks
    Q4 is 20 marks

    I would show it using AD/AS analysis, PPF is perhaps too simplistic?

    I would use both AD/AS and PPF. Increasing AS means there is an increase in productive capacity, which leads into a diagram illustrating a shift in the PPF and you can talk about economic growth from there. So both are good!

    i would say discuss both to get higher marks, AD is short run, PPF/ AS is long run isnt it?

    Thought i'd contribute to the thread a bit more with information instead of just questions. So I'm not sure about how likely this would come up but:

    Potential EU policies to improve fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. [20]

    -Minimum emissions standards
    -Legislation to enforce minimum fuel efficiency levels
    -Improved information and education
    -More widespread use of 'green taxation' a) higher fuel tax on petrol b)differential emissions taxes on new vehicles.
    -Impose penalties on car producers who make vehicles that exceed EU maximum
    -Encourage switiching to bio-fuels
    -Incentives to invest in clean car technologies
    -Promoting alternatives to road transport
    -Government procurement (purchasing) policies
    -Road pricing schemes
    -Incentives for scrapping old cars
    -Improve road infrastructure and traffic management technology
    -Carbon trading - tradable pollution permits
    -Carbon offsetting scheme

    The basis of this essay would be to consider a few of the above and write out pros and cons for the poitns chosen, then come to a conclusion about which you think would work best.

    EVALUATION: Note that it could be different policies for different countries in the EU, so while one may work well in say the UK, it may not work well in Germany.

    Hope this helps

    I usually spread it out evenly by doin the number of minutes divided by the number of marks (105/60) = 1.75 minutes for every mark
    So im not goin to spend longer than 2 minutes for every mark im trying to get. You would probably want to spend at least 35 minutes on the last question as it is worth a third of the marks!

    Hmm, however long the questions take; maybe something like:
    Q1(a): 5 mins
    Q1(b): 10 mins
    Q2: 20 mins
    Q3: 30 mins
    Q4: 40 mins

    Umm..well i need an A grade overall, and atm im on an A from AS, but retook 2883 as i only had 90/120 so hopefully if that went up to like 100+...then that would boost it up and help me. but 2887 didn't go that great last week, and i only got a D in january so i need to get an A for this unit...and for 2884 cause i flopped that in january too! So...hopefully, 2884 if i can get an A and 2888 i can get an A then ill be ok.

    What about u?

    i would shift AD first. someone earlier said that AD shifts because of increased C in the long run, but initially surely it is the increase in I (investment!).
