This post will go through what you should write in your Economics IA, with step-by-step instructions and with word counts for each section.
What you need to know before you write:
1) Avoid writing anything that isn’t going to earn you marks. You’re going to need all the words you can get for your analysis and evaluation. Avoid quotes from the article and introductions longer than 2 sentences.
2) Stick with one section of the course (micro, macro, international, or development). Don’t start off in micro (apple prices rise, supply and demand, elasticity) and then evaluate the potential macro effects (this could hurt economic growth). Even if this is true, the IA is about going deep into one part of the course, rather than showing the linkages between different parts.
3) Less is (often) more. Because of the very constraining word count (750 words) you’ll want to focus on really developing just one or two (two at the most) diagrams in your IA. And only evaluate one potential solution (the one in the article or one of your choice if (and only if) there isn’t one in your article. Some of you, I know, are wondering, “What if the article mentions two solutions? Like price ceilings AND subsidies?” Answer: the International Bacheloreate Organization says you can highlight the section of the article you’re going to focus on, so just highlight one solution (and not the other) and you’re good to go. Bibliographies are not obligatory, but they’re nice. And if you include them, they won’t count against you for the word count.
Now you’re ready. Here’s the Method:

150 Words
Don’t waste words with a lengthy introduction (or quotations). Instead right away start explaining the case using 3 or 4 course words. And then define these words. We’re not looking for a list of definitions. Rather the definitions should come in after you have just used the word in a sentence. So, as a rule…...

International Financial Reporting Standards (Ifrs): Pros and Cons for Investors

...(IASB), an independent organisation based in London, UK. They purport to be a set of rules that ideally would apply equally to financial reporting by public companies worldwide. Between 1973 and 2000, international standards were issued by the IASB’s predecessor organisation, the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC), a body established in 1973 by the professional accountancy bodies in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, United Kingdom and Ireland, and the United States. During that period, the IASC’s rules were described as ‘International Accounting Standards’ (IAS). Since April 2001, this rule-making function has been taken over by a newly-reconstituted IASB.’ The IASB describes its rules under the new label ‘International Financial Reporting Standards’ (IFRS), though it continues to recognise (accept as legitimate) the prior rules (IAS) issued by the old standard-setter (IASC).2The IASB is better-funded, better-staffed and more independent than its predecessor, the IASC. Nevertheless, there has been substantial continuity across time in its viewpoint and in its accounting standards.’ 2.3. Some thoughts on the role of mandatory uniform accounting standards IFRS boosters typically take the case for mandatory (i.e., required by state enactment) uniform (i.e., required of all public companies) accounting standards as self evident. In this regard, they are not alone: in my experience, most accounting textbooks, most accounting......

Bloodlines of the Illuminati

...finds that the elite have perpetuated their power for centuries, and have worked hand in glove with other elites to control the masses. When seen in better light, wars between kings no longer appear as wars between elite factions, but contrived wars to control the masses by their greedy elite masters. But who are these people? The answer may not be the answer some might expect, because power comes in many shapes and sizes. Power doesn’t have to have high visibility to be active. In fact, due to the evil dark nature of these evil bloodlines they have traditionally tried to remain secret. I am indebted to people who have stepped out of the generational Satanic bloodlines of the Illuminati and who have given their lives to Christ for many of the tips which got my investigations on the right track. This book tells what many witnesses of generational Satanism would like to tell, but are too intimidated to tell. Witnesses like Tom Collins, and John Todd, and David Hill have tried to testify what they themselves saw--they each were destroyed. But the truth will not die with Tom Collins or David Hill. The truth did not go out of fashion just because John Todd was framed and dishonored by the Illuminati’s henchmen. Several people from different places have confirmed that there are 13 Illuminati bloodlines. Further, several ex-Illuminati people have confirmed my list of 13 families. It is possible that my list is off on a name or two, but if it might be off, it can not be off much, if......
