IELTS Essay Discuss Both Views: Economic growth

Some people say economic growth is the only way to combat world poverty and hunger. Some people say economic growth is damaging the environment and therefore must be restricted. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.


Шаг первый: перефразируем задание + формулируем 1 аргумент за и 1 аргумент против во вступлении + выдвигаем наше мнение (какую сторону поддерживаем):

It is sometimes arguing that the development of the economic sector is the only powerful tool in order to release nations from poorness and starvation. However, there are those who disagree and consider that this leads to environmental disasters and have to be banned. I support the former view because sustainable economic progress is a golden opportunity to live a better life. Firstly, this essay will discuss a wide range of opportunities to find a job in countries with a stable economic situation. Secondly, it will be followed by an analysis of assumed increase in­­­­ air pollution in these countries.


Шаг 2: поясняем преимущество  + пример для подкрепления вашей позиции

On the one hand, proponents of economic growth appeal to the fact that finding suitable work positions is significantly accessible in economically progressive countries and I agree. This is because rarely do people realize the importance of creating work positions for citizens by the government. As a result of this policy not only are employees able to find a workplace independently, but they are also able to support their families and cover all basic necessities in the long run. For example, having carried out research in Canada, scientists have revealed a correlation between the economic sector sharp increase and dwindling of the unemployment rate for the last 2 years.


Шаг 3: поясняем другую сторону + ослабляем этот аргумент предложением “However, it is clear that…”:

On the other hand, opponents based their opinion on the assumption that air quality decrease as a probable result of the rapid growth of the economy. The reason for this is that on no account should influence the environment from different manufactories be ignored. Thus, if it were not for the benefits of the economic sector from these facilities, the level of contamination would not rise dramatically. However, it is clear that countries with an unstable economic situation could experience identical issues. Indeed, according to recent Asian air testing research, economically progressive nations have less polluted air areas due to the strong governmental control, than others. 


Шаг 4: делаем вывод о преимуществе (дублируем нашу позицию в заключении)

In conclusion, though people may very it their opinions, I am firmly convinced that the development of the economic sector is the key to success in fighting against poverty and creating workplaces for citizens.
