1. Look at the question paper and then
match the answers with the appropriate
question (bearing in mind they aren’t all
perfect answers – in fact some are wrong)
2. Identify and correct any deliberate errors
3. Assess questions that were correct but not
necessarily thorough enough against the
mark scheme. Award a mark and then
improve to get higher marks. (In particular
focus upon other possible answers for 2b,

Inflation – If aggregate
demand increases, and
demand already utilises most
of aggregate supply, then
rapid economic growth will
lead to a sharp rise in price
levels in the short term.
Increase in income inequality
– because inflation that
occurs suddenly and is not
planned for will result in a
redistribution of wealth that
may not be viewed as good
for the longer term health of
the economy.
Consumer expenditure
went up, because prices
got cheaper due to a fall in
inflation and there was less
poverty and less
There will be a positive
relationship between
changes in consumer
expenditure and
investment. More
consumer expenditure will
boost the animal spirits of
businesses and encourage
them to invest.

The tax cut will have
caused inflation by

A budget deficit is when a
government spends more
than it collects in tax. A cut in
tax rates can commonly be
associated with a budget
deficit as taxes like VAT and
income tax are a significant
source of government
income. A fall in such income
would appear to increase the
likelihood of a budget deficit
as the government will collect
less in taxes.
