2-K Revisiting Taxation AQA A-level Economics (new spec) MACRO

This is one of a set of Powerpoints (and accompanying Notes/Key Terms sheets) that I have created for my own teaching of the macroeconomic topics in the new (linear) AQA A-level Economics specification (7135). They follow the order of teaching recommended by the exam board and (generally) the AQA-approved textbooks (Powell & Powell, 2015).

When I teach this course I have the students do some ‘flipped learning’: presenting the topics that are re-visited from the first year to their peers. This Powerpoint covers the ground that I would expect them to cover and includes the elements that are extension for Year 2.

If you choose to use a flipped approach, this Powerpoint can be used as a back-up for anything that the chosen student misses. If you follow a teacher-led approach, this Powerpoint will cover the relevant Year 2 material, with a brief re-cap of Year 1 content.

Key terms covered in this Powerpoint: (references to the specification): Fiscal policy
• Fiscal policy involves the manipulation of government spending, taxation and the budget balance.
• Why governments levy taxes.
• The difference between direct and indirect taxes.
• The difference between progressive, proportional and regressive taxes.
• The principles of taxation, such as that taxes should be equitable.
• The role and relative merits of different UK taxes.
