Selecting A Unique Economics Dissertation Topic: 20 Good Ideas
A dissertation is not a simple and short essay. It is a detailed and lengthy piece of prose in which your research skills and writing technique will be tested. The chances of you doing well in your dissertation depend on a number of factors not the least of which is your choice of topic. Get that right and you’re well on the way to producing a fine piece of work.

As always, choose a topic which appeals to you and always discuss your choice with your teacher or tutor before making that final decision. A little guidance may make an awful amount of difference and help you produce a quality dissertation.
