IB Economics syllabus: International Economics (trade protection, tariffs)

Trump eliminated the 10% tariffs the US had against Canadian aluminum imports, but the President warned that the tariffs may be put back in place should imports increase a lot. This 2020 international economics article is great if you’d like to show the effects of cancelling tariffs on trade (less protection, more free trade).

About the Author:

My name is Daniel Szekely and I work as an IB Economics tutor, examiner and teacher. Having earned an MA degree in Economics at the University of Aberdeen, I started my career as a financial analyst at Morgan Stanley, one of the largest investment banks of the world. Yet, despite the promising career prospects of the banking industry, I decided to make a larger social impact by becoming a teacher. Currently, I teach IB Economics at SEK Budapest International School and have been an examiner for over 8 years. I started EconDaddy as a simple blog to share great articles with my students and others taking IB Economics around the world to use for their commentaries. Being a practicing IB Economics tutor, I have first hand insight into the most common mistakes of students, so the EconDaddy blog now also provides exam and commentary writing tips.
