Zooming In: discussion questions

Every week, we share a set of questions designed for A Level economics students to discuss, written by teacher Will Haines.

1. Show the possible impact of the Conservative's pledge to cut the national insurance rate for self employed on a labour market diagram. 

2. Why may it take time to deliver the savings outlined by the Conservatives in their plans to reduce disability benefits?
3. Assess whether the government should spend the potential savings from protecting per pupil school funding on other sectors, or invest it back into education?
