  2. Heyy!! I really need help finding an Econ IA article for Macroeconomics on unemployment or interest rates!! Please help. Thanks
  3. Hello, So this is especially for people who are struggling with Economics in their DP (like I did) and are aiming for a high-score. My teacher (who is an experienced IB economics teacher and examiner and who helped me get a 7 in Economics HL) has come up with this unique way of supporting students across the IB spectrum and help them achieve the top marks they deserve. She's hosting an assessment preparation weekend which will cover strategies to ace the assessments for both the internal and external components of the IB economics exam. To know more and register your interest, kindly go to PM me if you have any questions, I will forward them to her Hope this helps _^
  4. Are there any word limit for the extract we use for our economics IA? is it alright if the extract I am using is pretty long? The IA examples I got had really short extracts.
  5. Im taking Economics SL in IB because I took economics in my IGCSE, however, my batch is the first batch taking the Economics IB exam. What actually are the topics needed to be learnt for Standard level or SL? My teacher is unsure of it himself. please help!
  6. Hi! So I'm coming up to the end of year 10, and have gotten textbooks for IB. I would really like to study ahead in the holidays, especially for economics, a subject I have had no experience with. As I have had no experience, I have no idea how to start studying. The textbook I have is Economics for the IB Diploma, published by Cambridge. If anyone has any recommendations, tips or any experience at all related to this, please let me know!! Thank you
  7. Hi! I'm starting IB after the summer break and I am really interested in computer science, and it is a subject I will take. I understand the implications of taking it for when it comes to uni and that it will have little impact on any uni courses. I will also be taking econ, I'm just a bit afraid because from what I hear cs at HL sounds crazy hard. I am fairly competent in computer databases, systems and whatnot but I still fear that Cs HL would be too hard would changing Cs HL to sl and econ from sl to HL make sense, especially considering I have never taken any courses in economics? Thanks for any responses.
  8. Guys I'm writing my economics extended essay. My topic is about venezuela's economic crisis (hyperinflation) and my research question is How do the Venezuelan Government’s CPI values vary from the real market values? But the problem is that I really cannot find out which products are used to calculate Venezuela's CPI and the government hasn't released any data since 2015. Plus I cannot find the prices of the products they currently sell in Venezuela. It's just IMPOSSIBLE. My initial RQ was about the cause of this inflation but my EE supervisor told me that with that topic I'll never get an A. Can you please help me with my RQ?? + I changed it to To what extent have the government intervention and declining oil prices affected Venezuela's inflation rate? Does this question sound all right?
  9. Hey guys! I'm starting IBDP soon and am thinking about taking the following subjects English A (Language and Literature) HL Spanish SL Math SL (Math HL is not an option for me) Business and Management HL Economics HL Biology SL I am 99% sure that I want to pursue a business degree after high school and am currently looking at applying to Canada (UBC, UofT, YorkU). I was wondering if taking both BnM and Econ is a bad decision. Do universities really prefer that you take only one of the two? Even if you want to do your undergrad in business? Thank you all.
  10. Hi, I am trying to come up with an EE topic (I am already pretty late on this whole EE thing) and the only subject left for me to do it in is economics I came up with the idea of producing my EE around the topic of books and ebooks, mostly because an uncle of mine actually runs a book distribution company and can help me a lot in finding info. My research question right now is: "To what extent did the introduction of e-books in affect the demand and sales for paperback books in the São Paulo region of Brazil?". I live in São Paulo, Brazil, by the way... While I think this might be pretty viable, it has a few problems as the demand and sales for books and e-books is constantly changing everywhere, for many reasons, especially now in the economic mess Brazil is. Because of this, I think it would be very hard to form a cause-and-effect relationship between the books and e-books. Also, according to this uncle of mine, who knows quite a bit about the topic, it would be hard to find information regarding specific sales and the effects of e-books in any one city or region of Brazil, but finding info for the whole country might be possible. As I mentioned, this topic seemed good at first but now presents many practical problems. It would be nice to be able to stick to the whole books theme, but if it's not possible, I will switch to another topic. Anyhow, does anyone have any suggestions, ideas or anything to say on the topic? Anything would be useful really, so if you can think of something please send it my way! Thank you in advance! PS - I've also heard that it might be a good idea to keep my EE focused on microeconomics. Is that true? Thanks again
  11. Hi! Am i allowed to use websites such as NPR for my economics commentary? What kind of sources can we not use?
  12. Hey guys, I finished my Y1 with IB and this summer I've been trying hard to finalize my topic for the EE. I know it's a little late not to have a topic so I reeaaallllyyy need your help on this I'm thinking of writing one on bitcoin but I don't know which IB economics concepts would apply. I'm specifically interested in the risks of bitcoin and how it will impact the economy in the future. I could look at the determinants of demand in the case of bitcoin, or talk about price levels, but I'm not sure whether those would work. I guess bitcoin is related to money supply, but how would I graph this? I'm just really confused and need some help. I posted this in the EE forum but I'm running out of time so I'm posting it again in the Economics forum. Hope you guys understand Any suggestions/advice?
  13. hi, I'm a student writing my ee on economics, specifically price discrimination. My question deals with the extent to which certain mobile services firms practice price discrimination. In the first step, I proved that all 3 conditions necessary for price discrimination to happen were there, but I'm stuck after that. What am I supposed to? Please please help me
  14. Hey everyone, I'm about to enter DPY2 in August and I've got my question [To what extent has Tesla been more successful in Germany compared to France?] and I've done a lot of research, conducting surveys, interviews with a senior communications director in Tesla France and more. However, the more I look into this subject, the more I'm worried I don't have much of a groundwork to compare these two markets as they're both very similar. I previously had "... more successful in France compared to Spain?" but there was barely any information in regards to Spain so I chose Germany. Let me make clear that there is information out there, but I don't think I have enough to formulate a strong comparison as France and Germany have very similar markets. So my questions are: Do you think I should keep going with my question? If not, can you please suggest some possible variations I might choose to make with my question to answer it as best possible? Does anyone have any ideas where I might post a survey I created to get some reliable data? (I posted on Tesla Motors Club, Tesla Reddit, and SpeakEV) What are economic concepts that I should investigate in my Essay? (My two main ones are 'determinants of demand' and 'government intervention') Please let me know if you want me to share something with you, I honestly appreciate all the help possible. Thank you so much!
  15. Hello, guys! I hope that you are all doing great after the results day. I am thinking about requesting remarks in the following subjects: Dutch A: Lit SL 6 ( 3 points away from a 7) Biology HL: 6 ( According to the component grades, I had 79.6% whereas the upper-grade boundary is 80%) Economics SL: 5 ( 61.6% whereas the upper-grade boundary is 63%) Chemistry HL: 5 (61% whereas 64% is a 6) Other questions: 1. For Lang A: Lit SL, is Written Assignment also remarked (I had 19/25)? 2. For Bio, should I just pass the 80% mark (e.g. with the additional 0.5%) in order to get a 7 or I need 81%? I would really appreciate your help. Thanks! P.S. I am still waiting for some of the component grades (Dutch and Chem)...
  16. Hi Can you please help me? I found this article online, but I dont understand something. How come that with a lower interest rate, the productiity falls? When interest rates are low, I would have thought that people will have more money to spend, therefore the aggregate demand increases and more people get employed. How come that the productivity of firms decreases then? Thank you for your answers
  17. Dear everyone on IB Survival, I have already chosen by subject choices for the IB but I'm reconsidering them before I start IBDP1 in August. These are my IB Subject Choices = Higher Level = Biology, Chemistry, History and Italian B Standard Level = Math and English Lang and Lit My dilemma is that I want to keep career options open because I am not sure what I will want to do in the future. Medicine is highly probable ( the reason for Biology and Chemistry Higher Level) and so is economics, which of course requires Math HL. If I had Biology, Chemistry and Math all to HL then would it be too much work to handle? I appreciate any help and experience from people who have had similar situations or classes.
  18. Hi, I simply want to study at a University which offers good economic Courses, in europé. An University that has low cost tuition or free. Please leave suggestions. Subjects HL-Economics, English, History SL-Swedish, Enviromental studies, Mathematics.
  19. I’m about to go into IB2, with Math SL, Physics HL (which i suck at), ITGS SL (done), and Economics HL, with my EE in ITGS. I only just realized that im interested in these subjects, and feel kind off underprepared into writing a personal statement. I’m thinking of joining trade/finance, and writing my math IA about something economics related. I might also take part in the AP comparitive government. I just don’t feel like that's enough (and very pushy maybe), and that other students will have more to offer. I need inspiration. Also, is it smart to include something about a math IA in a personal statement? and what are some topics I could do it about other then Lorenz Curve/Game Theory. I just wanna explore and expose my interest, just need to find out HOW!? Thank you!
  20. Hey! I am currently working on my world studies extended essay concerning economics and geography. My RQ is “To what extent are retirement homes accessible to seniors in British Columbia, but more specifically, Langley, BC?” I'm currently trying to find economic and geographical theories and concepts that I can use. Currently, I have economies of scale and fiscal policy (is this even an "Economic theory"?) Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated Also, I am looking for an online service that edits papers like this? anyone have any prior experience or suggestions on a service to use? Thanks in advance!
  21. Help. I am currently trying to write an extended essay on game theory. The basic idea of it is applying a simple prisoner's dilemma game to strategy to a popular game show (both group strategy and individual strategy). The problem is that my extended essay is not really about math and more econ; however, i don't think I can include much of the in-class concepts into the paper (class didnt talk much about game theory), so what should I do. Also, is it way too shallow for me just to explain game theory (without any mathematics), explain game rules, and explain the two different applications (group and individual)?
  22. Hi everyone, Next year I am going to be taking Chemistry HL , Biology HL , Economics HL , Math Sl and Lang/Lit SL. Now I was wondering if anyone had good textbook ( textbook, study guide etc.) suggestions for these subjects that I will be taking? Since our school does not require to buy or use a specific book. Thank you:)
  23. 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.
  24.

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
