In Economics, students discuss a current topic of interest from an economist’s point of view by critically analyzing the economic insights and implications of their chosen articles.
Over the course of 2 years, students in both HL and SL compile 3-4 commentaries within their Economics Portfolio. The goal of this portfolio is for students to make connections between economic theory and their chosen articles. The goal is to deepen your understanding of micro and macroeconomic theories and their real-world applications. In the end you should be able to critique and discuss development issues faced by nations and people around the world.
