      Question one.
      and this is why I don’t like multiple choice. I tend to overthink the things. It was easy to tick true, but here is a question. What if it was not an income tax but a large import duty (10 per cent across the board) in a “high importing”(including intermediate goods) country. Considering the inflationary and unemployment outcome, how fast then the impact on income compared to gov. spending cuts?
