i cant find a topic for my phd in economics


any one has ideas???????/


If you can't think of a topic you want to do research in, I have to wonder why you want to do a PhD in the first place?

Why don't you have a look in some recent journals for topics that interest you and go from there.


I cannot but agree with the above response!

I don't know, it just doesn't quite make sense to me: knowing that a PhD means you'll spend a minimum of three years working on one topic, should it not be the topic that determines whether you'll apply for a PhD at all?

I'm a prospective PhD student (in English) and it's definitely because of my topic that I've started to apply here and there. I am actually so into it that I've decided that, PhD or not, I'll write that thesis, lol. It's not like I can dream, as I'm not a native speaker, to get a job in academia with it anyway. The PhD comes in only because I fantasize about being able to do this in 3-4 years full-time instead of 10 or 15 part-time.

I'm afraid if you go the other way round you may well be signing up for a few years of hell... I can't swear as I'm not into the thing yet, but it seems logical
