Our Context Practice Mats are a digital resource that are designed to be printed out on A3-sized paper to maximise their utility for students.

The five mini-case studies featured in this series on Market Failure cover:

  1. Minimum pricing of alcohol in Scotland: example of negative externalities in consumption and information failure
  2. Whaley Bridge and flood defences: an example of a public good
  3. Water: an example of a common good
  4. Flu vaccines: an example of merit goods and goods with positive consumption externalities
  5. Pay day loans: example of asymmetric information and market failure in the financial sector
