A student asks:
When discussing social and ethical issues, should the formula be, people directed affected, money allocated to different sectors of the economy, and the long run issues in the future?
Ethical questions are really tricky. I would say:
- people directly affected (both positively and negatively)
- the economic advantage and disadvantage given to the people in point 1
- privacy, safety, security are always good areas to explore
Almost all the time, the IB wants to see a consideration and exploration of the issues.
