  10. I'm currently looking for an article for my international economics commentary and I had a few questions. My teacher isn't letting me use an article from the internet because apparently the IB has a rule saying that only one out of three articles can be from an internet source, while the other 2 have to be from a print source. Is this rule true? I couldn't find anything specific pertaining to sources of articles in the economics guide, so I just want to make sure its ok to use an online article. Thanks guys!
  11. Hey guys, I am going to be brief. I am a little bit lost with my 2nd commentary. It seems easy as it is a very straight-forward work and doesn't require much research. The thing is I guess I haven't actually grasped the essence of writing an Economic commentary. Is it supposed to just explore and explain the discussion in the article, illustrating it with economic theory and diagrams? Or should I produce a discussion myself, with arguments in favor and against, even if they are not mentioned in the article? For example, I am doing on tariffs on China. And as you know there are several arg

  14. Hi everybody, as we all know exams are coming up and I wanted to create a post where we could share suggestions on language A paper 1 and possibly paper 2. My language A teachers, unfortunately, have not been very helpful in telling the class how to structure these essay and I have a few questions. 1) What do you guys think of the linear approach? The structure I use in a paper 1 essay is analysing every single line and writing down something both for content and form (I also write an introduction with a hint to the main message and the conclusion with the main message fully
  15. I'm writing my Economics commentary- 1 on Microeconomics and i don't know if it is acceptable and appropriate for me to draw the diagrams myself and scan them into the word document?
