Introduction

Economic Growth There is a clear difference in the economic growth of developed, developing and emerging countries. There are several reason for this; good examples that clearly protray this disparity are the United Kingdom, China and India. United Kingdom (%) 0.7 3.1 2.8 1.9 3.3 2.7 2.1 2.4 3.8 3.0 The United Kingdom is a developed country with positive economic growth. The United Kingdom Gross Domestic Product is worth 2646 billion dollars or 4.27% of the world economy, according to the World Bank. The United Kingdom is among the world's most developed economies. The UK has experienced economic growth since the last recession ended in 1990 until recently when it once agin entered recession. Since 1996 the level of real national output has grown in excess of two per cent each year; leading to a large rise in total real GDP and an increase in average living standards. The data shows than the UK has an average economic growth of 2.8% over the last 10 years excluding 2009 when it entered recession. ...read more.

Conclusion

As a result of india showing increase in growth other factors aslo lead to more increase foreign investement allowed this by reducing unemployment and increasing the ammount of money into the circular flow of the economy. The UK had the lowest figures due to a couple fo reason one is that it has maximised much of the resources and input available tot them therefore a continuos large increase it not capable. Also when there is a high economic growth it is always brought down, the reason for this is because of the ammount of imports which means money is lost form the circuar flow of the economy. The UK is dependant on imports as it is a small island with few resources. Unlike India who have the resources but China are relied on for so many products the imports do not have such a bif impact on the growth. However all the countries have been affected by the recession however some countries economic growth has had a bigger negative impact than others, especially the UK with 0.7%. China and India have managed to maintain a high growth due to the continual reliance on the products. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

Response to the question

This essay engages well with the task, looking at the differences in economic growth in developed, developing and emerging economies. I would have liked there to be some definition of economic growth, as I feel this essay focuses greatly upon the rate of growth. If I were answering this question, I would be looking at the type of growth as well, exploring capital goods, consumer goods, services, industry, exports, etc. This would then allow some more thorough analysis, looking at why the growth rates are different. The countries picked are wise as there is plenty of data to be analysed, and this essay uses it well.

Level of analysis

The analysis here is good. I liked the background information given for each country, as it shows the examiner you understand the significance of the titles developed, developing and emerging. I'm not quite sure the "China also learnt that more money came from exports therefore altered it job sector" is fluently explained, but it is correct to say that China has used its labour-intensive production well. Such discussion of comparative advantage would've been relevant here, and would be highly rewarded as its a sophisticated concept. I really would've liked to have seen a diagram here, explaining that exports are a component of aggregate demand, and so this would shift right causing growth. Although some of the comments are good, I don't think this essay gets to discuss the crux of why developing and emerging countries have swifter growth. An exploration of swift investment in infrastructure, and institutions facilitating fast-growth would have been wise.

Quality of writing

This essay has a logical structure, starting with simple definitions and figures and then moving into analysis. Sentences sometimes don't make sense, though. For example "Therefore growth comes from a higher level of AD and therefore leading to greated AS". This sentence has grammatical problems, but not only that, the economics doesn't flow nicely. I would be looking for a more detailed explanation of why a higher level of aggregate demand should lead to an increase in aggregate supply. This is a style that comes with practice, but working upon making your statements link and flow will benefit your arguments within essays.
