The Top 30 Good Dissertation Topics In Economics


Writing an academic paper requires more than just penning down a certain number of words on paper. This is more about thinking critically, understanding your subject, having an insight and adopting several planned strategies and effective techniques to complete the paper on time and with quality. You may be new to this kind of writing because unlike ordinary essays or comprehension passages, dissertations and research papers are complex in nature.

Economics is an interesting subject that talks about supply, demand and their equilibrium from an individual’s point of view as well as on a larger scale. You can divide economics into two major sections like microeconomics and macroeconomics. From here, you can sub-divide your paper into easy categories like opportunity cost, liquidity trap, balance of payments, recession, inflation and different economic structures. When you divide the paper, you will have easy options to narrow down your subject and research. It is better for you to choose a topic that is narrow enough or broad enough to cover your subject and topic. Remember that the topic you choose needs to be fresh and unique. If you talk about an old concept or idea, then no one will be interested in your assignment
