IB Economics syllabus: Microeconomics (market failure: threats to sustainability)

According to the latest report by the Committee on Climate Change of the UK, “people should cut the amount of beef, lamb and dairy produce they eat by a fifth to combat climate change.” Additionally, the UK government has a target of Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050 and the report urges it to take action: “public bodies should lead the way by offering plant-based options with all meals.”

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 6 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.
