So, I was pleasantly surprised today when I found out that there is a series of short 'lessons' for high school students on exactly this stuff.
It is the Planet Money 2021 Summer School series and you may find the first episode on the Stock Market here.
Planet Money has also many episodes that directly link to the new IB Economics Syllabus requirements like this most recent one on three reasons for the housing shortage in the US but the new Paper 1 requires real world examples and some of what is explained applies elsewhere. The issue would relate to maximum prices (price ceilings), in this case why in many cities rent controls are imposed or discussed/ debated.
Planet Money has many episodes that are of direct interest to our IB Economics Syllabus. Check out past episodes here.
