Wow 4 commentaries in a week :0
This is all i can tell you for now:
- Define and Explain economics terms/concepts
- Use diagrams to assist
- Then evaluate the situation (eg. What will happen in long run vs. short run/impact on stakeholders)

1. Definitely use diagrams, 1 is usually too little, but at least have one.
2. Start the commentary by (thoroughly) defining key terms, but try to do it as compactly as possible to leave space for the actual evaluation.
3. If you have a long article, highlight the points you are discussing in your commentary.
4. Mention the impact on different stakeholders, as well as the time period considered.
5. Remember to stick to the article, you should not show off with your knowledge in Economics if it's not relevant to the article.
6. If you're doing your commentary on Microeconomics, don't write about macroeconomics, you're supposed to focus on ONE topic.
