Like the title says, this website is the holy bible of IB Economics. Everything is extremely organized, all the concepts are explained properly (with lots of details), and it is easy to understand. Also, it is important to mention that there are notes/presentations to download for every single topic that contains all the information one could possibly need. Mr. Cartwright, you are the man. Props to you for making such an amazing website.

I thought the course was well structured in the sense that it goes from small simple concepts, then building upon each other to reach a well-rounded knowledge about the topic. That is good for comprehension when you learn something new. The thing I most enjoyed and found very useful was that towards the end of the unit, the videos start focusing on possible real-life scenarios which make the viewer think of what to write and add in an evaluation for a test. The best part is that all possible "textbook" answers are given throughout the videos which are great when writing an evaluation. Having all textbook answers focused my thinking on solutions in the evaluation that are not mentioned in the textbook, for example, discussing ethical and or social consequences in addition to the economical ones. Quality content

You have saved me regarding this subject. I am studying with three kids at home due to the Corona virus. The school I am studying for have not adapted to distance teaching. That have the effect that I am not being supported with the quality that I need to succeed. Thanks to your amazing presentation of the subject, you have made this a breeze to learn. When I have my exam in two weeks, I will be confident that I will nail the test. Many thanks for sharing your knowledge in Economics and the time you have put in to making this high-quality content!

A little bit about me...

I currently teach IB Economics and Theory of Knowledge at the International School Nido de Aguilas in Santiago, Chile. I have also served as Nido's IB Extended Essay Coordinator for the past four years.  I have 19 years of classroom experience, eight of which have been teaching both High Level and Standard Level IB Economics.  

Prior to moving to Chile in 2012, I spent four years at the American School of Nicaragua.  Three of those years I taught high school history, one of them I spent as High School Principal.  I began my teaching career in 2002 at the Atlanta Girls’ School in the United States. Prior to teaching, I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the central mountains of the Dominican Republic. I am a graduate of Duke University where I studied Public Policy Studies and History.  

Teaching IB Economics has been the most rewarding experience of my nineteen-year career and I would love to share a bit of what I've learned along the way.  Please don't hesitate to send me an email to brad@bradcartwright.com if you have any questions.

Wishing you all the best out there.  

Stay safe and healthy!

Brad
