This assignment requires you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the macro-economics element of the Module. Part (i) requires an explanation of what is meant by supply side policies and practical examples should be used to answer this question.
Part (ii) requires a discussion of fiscal and monetary policy and how these tools could be used to encourage economic growth.
The answers to the questions must be supported by academic theories and concepts and the paper must comply with the academic essay format and the Harvard referencing guidelines. The discussion in part (ii) must not be just descriptive in nature; it should provide clear evidence of understanding of the issues under consideration.
For both questions suitable diagrams should be used and must be referenced.
There is no correct number of academic references to be utilised as the student must draw as many references as required to provide a high quality answer. However, a minimum of 8 academic sources are expected, and a majority of these should be current, internationally peer reviewed articles/journals or accredited textbook references. You might also wish to use some Government websites to provide examples of the various policy tools that you are
discussing. Wikis and other sharing sources such as Wikipedia are not acceptable.
Please note that once handed out this assignment will be discussed every week in the first part of your EFB class.Order Now
