IB Economics syllabus: Microeconomics (market failure, externalities of consumption)

The UK government has decided to ban the sale of all new cars that burn fossil fuels by 2030 in a bid to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Hence, this is a great topic for an Internal Assessment in Economics if you’d like to write about market failure.
