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. Explain why higher economic growth would positively impact government finances?

2. Labour will target an increase in the employment rate from 75% to 80%. Outline the impact of this on an aggregate demand and aggregate supply diagram.

3. Labour plans to recruit 6,500 teachers. Referring to the concept of external costs, evaluate the impact of this on the economy.
