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.

1. Korupce (ekonomická analýza). Korupce v ČR neubývá. Dokonce se objevují už i její organizované formy. Nabízí se pokus o ekonomickou analýzu: a) Podmínky vzniku a podmínky bujení korupce. Hrozí ČR, že se korupce stane obdobou zla, které v Itálii představuje mafie? b) Analýza nabídky a poptávky po korupci. Je poptávka po korupci klesající funkcí? Je nabídka korupce rostoucí funkcí? Mohou se na "trzích korupce" objevit ceny vyčišťující trh? atp. 2. Veřejné statky a projevy lokálního populismus v parlamentu České republiky. (Například: každým rokem mnoho poslanců prosadí při projednávání rozpočtu státu dodatečné přesuny milionů Kč na různé "konkrétní" účely. Pokus o analýzu těchto aktivit v časové řadě.) 3. Neziskové organizace v ČR. Zásady financování a spektrum poskytovaných statků a služeb. (Mohou například zdravotnická zařízení pracovat jako neziskové organizace? Která a proč?) 4. Jsou neziskové organizace žádoucí, nebo spíše neústrojnou součástí tržních ekonomik? 5. Vyplatí se v ČR investovat do vlastního lidského kapitálu? (Pokus o porovnání výnosů ze vzdělání podle pracovních míst a oborů zaměstnání.)
