I think just general expansionary or contractionary effects on an economy or the impacts of them- so higher growth, lower unemployment, but inflation rises and CA deficit worsens or something like this. im not really sure tbh. 2021 they asked if rising national debt was damaging which is basically expansionary fiscal so it could be something like for contractionary.

SAME
im doing basically all my macro revision this weekend so i'll probs be crying no matter what comes up oh well

i think im just gonna revise as many topics in depth as possible focusing on the predicted ones
and ignore one topic i dont get and if that comes up just dont choose those questions
Can an increase in a country's national debt cause a depreciation in its currency? Because foreign investors will be less confident in the country's ability to pay back its debts, causing them to sell the currency.

I do mine neatly to make sure, the diagram is contextualized to gain marks for application and the labels are right but I find it easy to draw them much quickly in the exam

i think this is 2022:
context 1 : govt spending and national debt
context 2: long-run growth rate and exports and trade surplus
essay 1 : prevent currency rising and affect of currency rising on living standards and cost of living
essay 2: causes of rising consumption (wtf i wish we got that question) and is a fall in savings good for the economy
essay 3: role of commercial banks (ew) and policies to reduce cyclical instabilty

evaluate the view that a low and stable rate of inflation is preferable to deflation or something..
