Using the data and your economic knowledge, evaluate the contribution that the growth of government expenditure may make to the U.K. economic performance.
"In conclusion, the growth of government expenditure does have a major implication on the U.K.'s economic performance; however, it isn't the only factor that affects the country's economy e.g. consumer confidence in AD. Judging by the government's macroeconomic objectives, it is fair to say if there is a change in government expenditure it can have a significant effect on their objectives i.e. short and long run economic growth. However, as stated, consumer confidence is the major component of AD and even if there is a significant rise in government spending and intervention, it does not necessarily result in a more efficient economy, as seen currently in the global economic depression."
Discuss the extent to which a reduction in the rate of interest can be effective in increasing consumer expenditure and investment.
"In conclusion, a cut in interest rates is a very simple solution to increase consumer expenditure and investment levels in the short term. However there are factors that reduce the effectiveness of a reduction of interest rates such as the fact that interest rates will lead to increasing inflation and the effects is not sustainable as once the economy is at full capacity then no further expenditure and investment levels in the future can be achieved. There are also other alternatives to increases consumer expenditure and investment levels such as the introduction of supply side policies, for example increases in provision of education.
