  1. This thread is from May 2012.
  2. I think you should narrow down your topic a bit. I.e. don't talk generally about different Nash Equilibria in several fields of social sciences. Choose one field, then move on to a specific sector and formulate a hypothesis. It could possibly work out but it's a Maths EE so you do need to have maths. My guess is that if you combine game theory with probability distributions, it can turn out pretty good. Try looking into that. Game theory is tough though so be prepared. However, on a positive note, you can find applications of prisoners' dilemma almost everywhere in the real world so it shouldn't be too hard to find a topic.
  3. Technically there was never a treaty because they couldn't agree with S. Korea and they are still at war. But they're just not fighting anymore.
  4. It would be much more helpful if you told us where the universities you have applied to are. The policies differ depending on the place (e.g. the UK is different than the US). For the UK, sameeera95 has given you the answer.
  5. I would suggest you try and find a topic that is related to the IB economics syllabus. To my knowledge, there is nothing relevant to stock prices taught in the IB so you would be greatly down marked. The moderators want to see you applying the concepts that you have been taught in school. Also, talk to your teacher. They can give you past EE Economics topics and you can then move from there.
  6. This is a fairly old topic so I assume you are writing it for practice? I remember writing it as my official TOK essay. Anyway, you can find loads of ideas here:
  7. Even though that is a good suggestion, if you find a longer article you want to use and you are afraid its length might have an effect on your grade, I suggest you highlight (on the article) the main points you are going to use so that you help the moderator when/if they receive your commentaries. As the other use said though, aim for smaller articles.
  8. I'm fairly sure maintenance loans are only for home students and fee loans for home and EU. In any case, these two websites should have the answers: http://www.saas.gov.uk/ http://www.studentfinance.direct.gov.uk/portal/page?_pageid=153,4680119&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL
  9. You can always tell us your topic and we can suggest possible structures for you - in terms of topic separation, etc.
  10. Automatic generated message This topic has been closed by a moderator. Reason: Question answered. If you disagree with this action, please report this post and a moderator or administrator will reconsider it. Kind regards, IB Survival Staff
  11. With this question you are getting in the fields of consumer theory and consumer choice which is not really covered in the IB syllabus so I don't know to what extent it would be a good idea to discuss it. If you really want to know though, pm me and I will tell you. If you cannot really find much to say though, do you have any other backup topics you want us to help you with? Or maybe you can discuss the general decision to privatise the industry and its effects. That way you can both consider the consumers and how it affected them, but also the market as a whole (in terms of efficiency, number of firms, barriers to entry, etc.) and overall, if it was a good idea or not. A possible suggested topic would be: "To what extent was the decision to privatise the national electricity market (in your municipality) beneficial for the economy?"
