  2. Are there any articles that are easy to work on the Econ IA in the Microeconomics section?
  3. Even though there are several guides here on IBS on how to write the Evaluation in Economics Internal Assessment I thought I could add this to it! There is a very useful acronym that can be used for evaluating in Economics IAs called CLASPP. Under is the explanation of the different letters and what you should aim at doing in the evaluation and the individual points/letters. (d.) — A clasp is some­thing that holds things together. But (spelled with 2 P’s) it’s also an acronym for the 6 types of eval­u­a­tion in IB Economics. Try to do all 6 parts. Con­clu­sions What can we con­clude from the t
  4. So I'm doing my Econ IA on inflation, on this article: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/jul/15/uk-inflation-rises-as-game-console-prices-increase-in-lockdown-coronavirus I want to talk about the type of inflation to be able to draw a diagram and explain it. The increase in gaming consoles is cost pull/demand pull, I know that one. But the other type of inflation is coming from lack of summer sales from fashion so prices of the clothing has stayed the same when it typically goes down due usual season sales. ("The ONS said clothing prices had not followed the standard seasonal patt
  5. Hey guys! I have to give in my Economics IA in about a week but I have no idea how to do it or write about it. I chose this article: https://www.theguardian.com/business/2019/may/16/australias-unemployment-rate-rises-to-52-adding-pressure-to-interest-rates The problem is I have no idea if this is a good article and I don't really know how to structure it. Can anyone help? Thank you so much

  7. My friend and I coincidently chose the same topic for our IA and wrote our commentaries on it. But our articles are different, is there a need for changing the topic?
  8. Ladies and Gentlemen, After snooping around in the Economics section of this board and using the search tool, I couldn't seem to find any links to internet sites, where you can read economics articles and possibly find one that suits a prospective commentary. So I came up with this idea that we can link websites that normally have relatively good articles to each other, so people can read them on a daily basis and eventually find some articles for their furture commentaries. I don't know if this will work out, but it's worth giving a try. Google News is a great source! It is updated like every
  9. What is an IA? An internal Assessment in Economics is a written commentary based on an economics article that you have chosen. The article you choose should allow you to explain and analyze economic events. For Economics SL, your IA represents 25% of your total IB score for Economics. For Economics HL, your IA represents 20% of your total IB score for Economics. How it is assessed: There are 5 IB Criteria on which your commentary will be assessed: A - word limit+ IAs cover more than 3 sections of syllabus. [2 marks] B - 4 different sources + appropriate use of diagrams. [4 marks] C - Econ
  10. Hey, I have chosen an article about the Mexican soda tax (it was in a blog, but I think it is allowed as a source since the blog belongs to The New York Times). The problem is that the tax was introduced in January 2014, the data was collected from December 2014, an investigation was carried out in December 2015, published the findings in January 2016 and the article was published also in January 2016:D My teacher said that my article is good, but the events are too old.. Is this article not about "current events"? Should I choose another article?( Would love some input
  11. Hello! For my 1st IA the resource of my article was New York Times and for 2nd Japan Times and now I have a doubt about these websites. The doubt is about that I am not sure are these resources considered as one because two of them are part of "Times".. And for IA there should be 3 different resources and I do not know are they going to penalize me for criteria F - Rubric requirements. What do you think? Thank you in advance!
  12. Hey guys. So I'm doing a mock IA on this article http://www.southwales-eveningpost.co.uk/Minimum-alcohol-price-law-Wales-say-Labour/story-28029919-detail/story.html and its my first time writing an economics IA. I have written around 400 words however i don't know if I'm going on the right track. So initially I've talked about the article as a whole. Then about price ceiling (while defining it) and its effects (like excess supply) followed by a paragraph on how the government can combat the excess supply. Lastly i did a stakeholder analysis. (all adding up to around 400 words) I just wanted
  13. so basically i've written my IA and i've handed it in and i realised the article says it was written over a year ago and was updated under a year ago. I'm terrified that I will lose points for this. My teacher said he will not remark another IA and therefore i cannot rewrite one. Is there anyway I can change this?
  14. Hey guys! I've taken economics hl and I'm confused about the IA. My teacher said there has to be more than 1 diagram (graph) in the commentary, but I don't see anything like that in the guide; is that true? Or its fine if I have only one diagram? I'm also looking for some sample economics IAs that are graded (like there are for sciences on ibpublishing), so if anyone knows any source, please share. Thanks in advance!
  15. Hello! What do you think are we allowed to use website http://uk.reuters.com as a resource for our eco IA? I am not sure since they only mentioned to avoid website http://www.economist.com/ Thank you in advance!
  16. Can you help me analyze this article? It is pretty simple but I just want to know if I'm on the right track... http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/uk-unemployment-rate-unchanged-5-5-wages-edge-1519938 So basically I have to talk about unemployment and anything else? Thanks in advance!
  17. hey people, i started doing my commentary in economics and the website i use to draw graph is hard for me to use it. so can you people suggest me some other website or an app for drawing graphs.? (just the link or name of the website)
  18. Hey guys! I have problems with finding a very good article for my 2nd IA, and because my first one wasn't as good as I wanted it to, I need this one to be really good. I wanted to write it on either Macroeconomics or International trade and I honestly do not know which one is better... so that's one problem... the second problem is that I have to write the IA till Monday... I found out today. So concluding, can you help me find any good articles on one of the 2 topics?
