  1. Heyy!! I really need help finding an Econ IA article for Macroeconomics on unemployment or interest rates!! Please help. Thanks
  2. How can you show that there is too little or not enough inflation in an economy with a Keynesian diagram? Say, for example, that a government wanted to have a 3% inflation rate, but currently has only a 0.5% inflation rate. How would you illustrate the initial problem (the 0.5% inflation rate) in a Keynesian diagram?
  3. Say you have a Keynesian diagram showing a recessionary gap where actual output is less than potential output, and aggregate demand is on the left of the full employment level of output (Yfe). If AD increases and shifts to the right, but does not reach the full employment level of output, and the price level (PL) increases, and the new AD curve is still on the left side of Yfe, would the increase in PL be called 'inflation'? How do you know whether there is spare capacity in an economy? When reading an article, how do you know whether aggregate demand is in the spare capacity section? Can AD be somewhere in the middle - in between completely spare capacity and full capacity? What are the characteristics of this section? Why are prices and wages sticky/inflexible? Can they be upwardly sticky/inflexible?

  11. Hi guys, For my macroeconomics IA I found an article about the Japanese government's attempt to increase inflation through raising the minimum wage (I've attached the article). Would it advisable to analyse this economic proposal from both monetarist and Keynesian points of view, or to just choose one view and stick with it? Thank you! high wage japan.pdf

  15. Hello all, Let me start off by saying that I am a horrible economics student and I simply don't understand the subject at all. With that being said, we have just recently started out macroeconomics IA. I found an article and had it approved by my teacher but I really don't know how I should set about analyzing it. Can anyone read over the article and give me suggestions on what to talk about, what diagrams to draw, what part of macroeconomics this fits into, etc. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/05/08/colombia-cenbank-idUSL2N0NU1YR20140508 I'll really appreciate the help Thanks.
  16. Hey guys, I've narrowed down a list of possible articles that I might pick for my Econ Macroeconomics commentary. Please help me out? http://in.reuters.com/article/2014/04/21/brazil-economy-worldcup-idINKBN0D70BZ20140421 - For this one, I'm kind of confused on what to say to solve the issue, as Brazil will be hosting the world cup, which makes government spending essential. Moreover, it says that not even monetary policies are able to ease the pressure, which is even more confusing. I really like the topic though. http://www.dailystar.com.lb/News/International/2014/Apr-26/254449-ukraine-crisis-leaves-shoppers-out-of-pocket.ashx#axzz2zzv8OWdg http://www.bbc.com/news/business-22394212 - Kind of leaning towards this now... http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/economy/brazil-inflation-at-highest-rate-for-march-in-11-years/article17900884/ - Is brazil talking about enforcing a monetary policy to ease inflation? Thanks!
  17. Hey everyone, I've been having a hard time picking a good article for my Macroeconomics Commentary, would anyone help me out? I've found some potential ones, and I'm kinda leaning towards the ones about Brazil or Ukraine more. I feel like some of them don't even talk about possible solutions (like fiscal or monetary policies) What do you think?

  18. Hi guys, Does anybody have any macroeconomics IA samples that they are willing to share with me? I need it urgently for some reference; I just uploaded a few of my microeconomics IAs on the IBSurvival database to become a VIP member and see some of the user examples, but I'm afraid confirmations from the mods will take a while, so please, anyone willing to help a poor IB student out? :'( Sincerely, Aesop
  19. Hey guys! It's getting close to when we have to choose our extended essay areas and I'm planning to do something in macroeconomics related to house rent prices and inflation. My question is along the lines about how house rent prices have affected inflation, but I know that economics requires primary research. What kind of primary research could I use for such a topic ? Thank you!
  20. Hey guys! So, I am doing my EE in Economics HL and it's about how a particular industry influences the development of a local area nearby. I need help coming up with different types of tools/concepts/diagrams that can 'measure' or 'detect' development. For example, currently I am looking at things like: - the average level of income in the area and the change in income over the last 10 years - the externalities in the area created by the particular industry. I am also looking at other things that might affect development (increase in tourism, growth in country, etc). So, can anyone help me with this? I need more development tools and theory. Also, what else can affect the level of development in an area. (For example, the area I am talking about recently underwent a 'renovation'. All the roads and pavements were rebuilt. This was due to the increase in tourism and the local council and the government wanted to make the city's image better.) If you want anymore information, just let me know.
  21. Hey Guys, For my first macro econ IA, I have covered the topics of unemployment and inflation as they are close related and interest rate as it was mentioned in the article. My teacher asked me to write another macro IA, except I have covered all the topics you can possibly discuss. What should I do? Do one of those topics again? Maybe someone has a suggestion? Also what are the different sections the IAs can come from? Microeconomics, macroeconomics, international economics and development economics .. correct? Thanks a lot, Louis
  22. Hello IBSurvival Economics Enthusiasts I need help with selecting between two articles for my 2nd commentary draft. Both articles relate to the chapter 17, Low Unemployment in the Oxford Econ book. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/europe/2013/04/201341261959680936.html or http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/10001395/Unemployment-figures-are-worrying-David-Camerons-spokesman-says.html Both questions mainly deal with the accounting of current situation in relation to the costs of unemployment, any suggestions on where i could take either article with my commentary is appreciated. Thanks!
  23. Is this article good? Also can anyone provide any suggestions of what I could talk about? http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/15/business/fed-chooses-jobs-over-fighting-inflation.html?_r=0
