IB Economics syllabus: Microeconomics (negative externalities of consumption)

The consumption of food and drink with high sugar content leads to many negative externalities. In the first place, it leads to obesity (which has many bad consequences), so officials in England plan to introduce new regulation in order to cut the consumption of such food and drink among children. Meanwhile it is also mentioned that there are plans of introducing a tax on sugary drinks.

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 became 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 5 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.
