Hmm, well if you did this would you submit it as an Economics paper? Or would you like to submit it under a different category. Depending on what type of essay you submit it as, you could focus on different parts of your topic. :yes:

It definitely is a nice microeconomics topic, but is it possible that it is a bit broad? I mean taxing does have a huge effect, so maybe you could take a look at 1/2/3 things it affects within the tobacco industry.

as deissi said, try a specific thing within the tobacco industry. So something like how does taxing affect consumption/production of tobacco in Bangladesh.

Hi IB fellow!

How does taxing on tobacco affect the tobacco industry in Bangladesh?

I'm just a HL student but I think your question is too general and nearly impossible to get primary data which is needed to get into the higher marks area. I mean what could you do? Ask a spokesman of the tabacco industr? quite unlikely.

Don't know if you need any ideas but i think for your topic you could talk about:

a) Demerit goods (considered to be unhealthy)
B) Policies?
c) negative externalities
d) price elasticites of demand (should be farily inelastic for tabacco isnt it?)
e) is the tax passed onto the consumer (links to elasticities).

Good luck!
