So I think Q20 was a trick question. I think the answer is D because there are no imports, so in fact the revenue rises.

Also I don't know what the answer to 11 is. I put b.

Altogether a nice paper. I did macroeconomic policy mix and unemployment for the essays.

Did exchange rate and unemployment. Fucked up time-management and only had like 27 minutes for unemployment. Last minute 5 minutes both the pens I had kept screwing on me and i kept having to scribble on paper to revive it. That basically stuffed me as I needed just a few more things for unemployment but didn't have a chance to write. Stupid pens running out. Used spare pencil for conclusion LOL, wonder if they count it still.

I don't think I mentioned it...whoops. I talked about appreciation of dollar (impact on unemployment in tourism industry), GFC (cyclical unemployment causing lower Eco growth + lower productive capacity) then reduction in protection (increase in structural unemployment placing burden of govt due to welfare payments-->opportunity costs)

That was the most easy exam I have ever done! the exchange rate question - just beautiful, shorts - amazing, multis - beaut, Q28 alright but relatively easy to answer.

Do u guys reckon its a rather easy paper? Wt would the b6 n state cut off be:3
I'd imagine high 80's, I don't think Economics gets aligned to a mark that's much higher than your raw mark.

I reckon it was a fair test overall; multiple choice and short answer had a few difficult/weird questions and the essays were pretty standard

Ok I'm sorry but I don't understand how question 20 is D. Isn't a tariff a tax on imports? That would mean that imports exist in the economy simply due to the existence of the tariff right? Therefore, a reduction in tariffs results in a reeducation of revenue as tariffs are revenue based
