  1. I am planning for this to be a spread where people can post some links on the updates on the positive AND negative impacts of Trump's decision of pulling out of the Paris Climate Change Agreement. I believe that most of the information in this thread will eventually be really useful especially for economics, geography and ESS students so... You're welcome... We can also talk about the claims and counter-claims by Trump and whoever is against Trump... All-in-all I am going to keep on regulating this thread in case I find anything interesting. You guys can post whatever you guys think about it... right now... Thoughts... or maybe ideas on how to help us "stop" or "slow down" climate change.
  2. So I'm going to be starting in the IB next year and I have to either choose between History HL or Economics HL OR take one as HL and the other as SL, but then I'd have to have 7 subjects and I'm not sure if I'll manage. I also want to be a diplomat or go into politics or IR or law after IB. These are the subjects I've chosen so far: English A HL Norwegian A SL Math SL Biology Visual Arts HL plzz help
  3. Hi everyone, I will go into my junior year in the coming school simester. My current IB selection is Econ HL, Psych, HL, Bio HL, and the rest at SL. What would be the best Ib combination if i am looking to do a degree in economics/ commerce for university in Canada or Australia. Also should I have physics hl instead of Biology Hl? If I want to maybe keep my options open for computer science? Some help in choosing my subjects would be highly appreciated.
  4. I'm doing my EE in economics, and I need some help to develop survey questions. My EE is based on the market failure caused by a pharmaceutical firm in my locality. My supervisor isn't very helpful in guiding me, and i dont know what sort of a survey I should take. I was thinking of interviewing the firm, and then the local residents. How should i base by survey question?
  5. My Extended Essay title from Economics is What market structure best characterizes medicine supply industries in my area Baku? Is it too narrow or too broad? I could've chosen another city but this where I live so I can do some primary research.
  6. Hi everyone, For graphs, there are cases when they label quantity (in millions) on the X-Axis. For example, there is a tariff graph and a question asks me to calculate consumer expenditure. Would I still gain marks if I wrote the answer as "(Price value) per kg" even if the X-Axis label states quantity (in millions) kg?
  7. Hey guys something has been really bothering me lately. My school just sent my commentaries to the IB a while back. I found out that some definitions in one of my commentary weren't cited but were taken from 'Investopedia', however all my ideas and concepts were original. Will I get penalised for the uncited definitions?
  8. What are your predictions for paper 3 questions that could come up? Market structures (costs) maybe?
  9. Hey everyone, I really don't understand how to draw a structural unemployment graph, and my teacher is in the hospital. I am not able to find any info about it either. Please help
  10. I am unsure in the economics exam whether I need to draw the diagrams for all the questions on the graph apper provided by the examiners, or if I draw it ont he answer booklet alongside my response to the question. Any help would be appreciated, I'm stressing out over this
  11. Hello, my teacher introduced EE today and I am wondering what topic I should research on. I chose econ for my EE. I will be in Japan during this summer and am planning to collect data from there. I am thinking microeconomics since its easier to get data. Do you guys have any ideas what I could do? My teacher told me that he is sick of reading the topic of market structure, so I have to choose something else. Please help me...
  12. Hello, I have been following every single point of the syllabus for Macroeconomics and Development. However, I feel that I won't have enough time to cover Macroeconomics and International looking at the syllabus and in very efficient way. Therefore, I would like to ask if you guys know any source to study for these following the syllabus, any tips or study guide that may help me. Also, is there a way that I can learn the 1.5 Theory firm in faster way? Thank you so much, Danilo.
  13. My research question would be "How would the legalization of recreational marijuana in Georgia affect the gross domestic product of the state?". Would there be too much speculation involved in order for this to be an effective research question?

    Need some advice.

    Hi. I'm having some serious doubts about my course selection for the IB. I'm currently in Grade 10 and in my last year of MYP and will be starting the IB program this fall. I've chosen: English Lit HL Biology HL Chemistry HL Psychology HL German ab Initio SL Math SL This course combination suggests that I am leaning towards the medicine track. Although, the thing is, I'm not sure if I want to be a doctor. My parents really want me to go down this path because of the stability it provides (financial) They are also in the medical field so they know the field and they know this path very well. I've talked with them a couple times about my doubts and it usually ends in a fight. In their mind, I can only become 1 of 3 things: a doctor, a lawyer, or an engineer. *Engineering is pretty much out of the question because I suck at mathematics and I've taken two 'engineering style' courses (Intro to Computer Science and Design Technology) and I had to drop DT because I was failing the class. I am not doing too well in Computer Science either. *I'm not sure about being a lawyer too. I think I have the right skills for this career. And no, not the cliche 'I like to argue' one. I have a real passion and natural aptitude for the humanities. I have always gotten good grades in subjects such as English and History and I enjoy learning about these subjects. Unfortunately, careers in the humanities (except for being a lawyer - and even some lawyers share their experiences about how they are struggling to find work) don't pay well and I am afraid of taking a risk and changing all my IB courses to fit this pathway and I am unemployed, full of regret, and hate my life. *I'm also afraid that if I stick with my courses, I won't do well in them and I'll ruin my university chances and can kiss all my dream schools goodbye. Honestly, what top university would accept a student who had 5's for their HL sciences? Or less than that? Right now, I'm not doing badly in science. My grades range from an 88-92 but I have to try really hard to get this grade or even higher than this. In chemistry, my grades weren't bad I actually enjoyed it. Biology is okay up until you move past cell structure and you start learning about plants and anatomy and I find that really boring because of all the details & memorization. So, I would really appreciate some input on what course of action I should take. Should I listen to my parents, keep my course combo, and become a doctor despite the fact that I'm not sure if I want to be one? Or should I change my course combination?
  15. I'm just wondering what subject to do for my EE. I have a nice Physics investigation topic that I can do several experiments and write about them, which my Physics teacher kind of support and agree with the topic. But I plan to study Economics at the university... so I am just wondering if I write my EE on Economics will that boost my application? But I feel that it will be rather difficult to do so since Economics theory exists in the world and it is rather difficult to write about Economics research because economists have done a bunch of them. Another alternative is writing about Math. Well, this will take much more time, but I think it is worth trying if writing about Math can boost my Economics uni application. Thanks!!
  16. Hi guys, What do you think is a better EE subject choice for law? Unfortunately, I didn't take history in IB. That's why the options are either English B or Economics... I am interested in both of the subjects for sure. Economics might be a harder one for me to do tho. If I choose economics, I will talk about the effect of Brexit on the Spanish economy; and if I choose English, I will talk about the perception of law/justice in one play... What do you think might be more useful to do? Do EE subjects matter at all?
  17. Hello all, I'm in the process of selecting my IB courses for the next 2 years. I'll be completing the full IB at an established IB school so I have quite a few options. I'm interested in studying law or a social science at a UK university such as Oxford, or King's College. I think I have narrowed down my IB choices to the following: English A Literature HL History HL Economics/Business Management HL ESS SL (I know this is a 'soft' subject but I'm not a great science student!) Math SL Spanish A Literature/French A Lang&Lit SL What do you think about this subject combo? Do you think it's too hard, too easy? Also, do you think it's good for UK entrance and for the courses I'm interested in? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

  20. Hi, I was thinking about topics for an extended essay in economics. The thing i'm most interested is in game theory and the Nash equilibrium. Could somebody help me form a topic on these theories?
  21. Right now I still have 4 high level’s, as I only need 3, I need/want to drop one HL subject. My two options are economics HL, or English language and literature HL. ECONOMICS ENGLISH It is not subjective. I can work really hard and memorize the definitions and concepts and it will be a right or wrong answer It is subjective, teacher A might like my essay but teacher B might say that it is a bad essay. Have to do paper three. Calculations Have two read two more books than SL student It takes up a lot of time to understand the concepts. We can’t really study for English. Just need to understand the text in depth. The grade boundaries is really different The grade boundaries are not too different. I’m planning to take fashion business as a university major. So economics will really benefit my knowledge for this major. Language will defiantly help me write thesis in university. However, it has nothing to do with my major. I’m really confused on which one I should drop. Anyone have any suggestions?
  22. Can anyone please help me with this For my Extended Essay, I plan to do research on the business/economic aspect of football. As football is becoming more of a business in the modern day, and many decisions are business motivated it is what i plan to research. However, the issue is that along with checking in with my supervisor we realized that the Business Management EE is more an analysis of an organization making a decision or activities of the firm and that business tools would need to be used. Also, we could not find how we would apply this topic to the Economics IB syllabus. Examples of what I would wish to study are analyzing China’s recent activity in the football market and their 50 point development plan for football in China or the expansion of the world cup to 48 teams. There is nothing specific under this topic I wish to do my EE in and any thing that I can find suitable to do my EE related to this topic will be great.

  24. Hi! I urgently need help in finding an article that links any government policy (fiscal or monetary) to unemployment for my macroeconomics IA! Any article from 2016 would work!
  25. Hello! I'm a tenth-grade student planning on doing the IBDP for my junior and senior year. As we are beginning our second semester soon, we are required to pick out our subjects for IB. I had a couple of concerns as when I told people about the subjects I'm intending to take, they said I would face a hard time. I'm hoping to study engineering at university, hopefully, either chemical and biomolecular engineering. I'm also hoping to get into a top university as it would help me so much! The subjects I'm planning on doing are; -Physics HL -Math HL -Chemistry HL -Economics HL -English A Lit SL -Arabic B SL As you can see I really don't want to spend time on languages and I clearly want to focus on sciences and maths. If you have any concerns or advice I could use, it'd be greatly appreciated! Thank you
