Students assigned to write economics term papers usually find themselves in trouble when it comes to choosing topics for essays.
Finding good topics for economics term papers can be a bit tricky as the subject itself is pretty diverse covering arcane theories and matters related to real world like unemployment, GDP, economic growth, trade etc. Students should be glad that they have a wide range of amazing topics at their disposal.
Unlike other subjects such as history, sociology, psychology etc, economics presents a much broader range of topics for students—as the subject mostly focuses on issues that concern just about everyone. For instance inflation, unemployment, taxes are some of the issues that everyone is usually concerned about.
What worries students?
Microeconomics or macroeconomics? This is the question that worries most students when choosing topics. However looking separately at both branches (micro/macro) can help you a lot. For macroeconomics, you have topics like unemployment, GDP, Federal Reserve System and business cycle.
As for microeconomics, demand-supply, comparative advantage, black market and market failure are some of the topics.
If you are one of those students who hate complex economics theories, calculations and graphs, try to keep things simple and stay out of unnecessary trouble that will result in low grades.
To keep on the safe side, you can choose John Maynard Keynes for instance. Writing about Keynes’s contribution and his role will save you a lot of trouble—as the topic is easier to research than dissecting a complex theory. This is just one example to give you a rough idea of how you can keep things simple and get good grades.
Go for topics that are easy to research
No matter what you have decided to write on—micro or macroeconomics, always go for a topic that is easily available. For instance, if you want to write an essay on US employment crisis, you can get ample information on the topic from net, magazines, journals, books, newspapers etc.
