How does the resource link to the curriculum?
Rachel Griffith's work in applied microeconometrics is particularly relevant to A-level students studying microeconomics and the use of economic models to analyze consumer behavior, market outcomes, and government interventions. Her work also relates to topics covered in the A-level curriculum, such as externalities, sustainability, and government intervention.
