Export credit support (for example Czech institutions EGAP, CEB). The economic analysis of alcoholic beverages and tobacco industries. Economics of biofuels. Economics of genetically modified biofuels in Eastern Europe [This topic does not require any theory or exceptional smartness. It requires primarily dilligence and hard, but simple, work with assembling data about agricultural crops used for biofuels in East European countries. And some basic economic intuition in drawing conclusions from the data and extrapolating the data. And some interest in understanding the simple basics of biofuels crops agronomy and economics. This could be easily two or three thesis, each one concentrating on different group of countries. Knowledge of Eastern European languages (Russian, Romanian, Polish, Hungarian atc.) may be an advantage, but it is not required since the majority of good data sources is likely to be in English anyway.] Economics of solar energy and other topics related to energy security. Regulation of OTC derivatives. Merit order price effect for renewable energy sources Green financing in Czech banks Green financing in Slovak banks Green financing in European banks Climate-related risk and financial stability Green bonds Green shares Financing Green Deal – descriptive analysis of available public and private financial sources for supporting EU Green Deal .

PhDr. Jiří Kukačka Ph.D.
Students are welcome to contact me via email and consult the supervision of Bachelor theses related to fields of my research interest (the maximum load of supervised Bachelor theses is around 2 for 2024/2025): 1) Behavioral Finance (empirical econometric approach). See interesting videos here and here, read about behavioural biases, patterns, and anomalies here, and download comprehensive e-handbooks here, here, here, and here. Are these patters still detectable? Are they detectable at other markets than where discovered? 2) Cryptocurrencies/Cryptoassets (empirical econometric approach). Read this overview article and see our recent paper. Do various well-known behavioral finance biases and patterns also play a role in cryptocurrency markets? 3) Agent-Based Modelling in economics and finance, for motivation read this nice article. Implementation/extension/analysis/estimation of a simple financial heterogeneous agent model (handbook 2006, handbook 2018), or a macroeconomic agent-based model in NetLogo or any other software (R, Julia, etc.). See this textbook with example codes and these interesting videos for more inspiration: finance, macro. 4) Agentization of a theoretical model into the discrete agent-based domain. Do both result in the same findings? Examples: Cournot oligopoly with simple learning, cartels. Implementation in NetLogo or any other software (R, Julia, etc.). See this textbook with example codes for more inspiration. 5) Corporate social responsibility (CSR) and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) scoring and investing (empirical econometric time series analysis of financial data). See our recent paper on the CSR topic.
