About the Author:

My name is Daniel Szekely and I work as an IB Economics tutor, examiner and teacher. Having earned an MA degree in Economics at the University of Aberdeen, I became a financial analyst at Morgan Stanley, one of the largest investment banks of the world. Yet, despite the promising career prospects of the banking industry, I decided to make a larger social impact by becoming a teacher. Currently, I teach IB Economics at SEK Budapest International School and have been an examiner for over 5 years. I started EconDaddy as a simple blog to share great articles with my students and others taking IB Economics around the world to use for their commentaries. Being a practicing IB Economics tutor, I have first hand insight into the most common mistakes of students, so the EconDaddy blog now also provides exam and commentary writing tips.
