    Heya, I'm going to put this in the Economics forum for you as you should get more responses there.

    You should also check out the forum to see if there's any other threads there which might be helpful to you!

    Hi, I'm going into year 12 and I was asked to do 1500 words on 'Did the World Cup really benefit the Brazilian economy?' over the summer.

    I see a few interesting essay from one particular economics blog I enjoy: 'Why premier league footballers SHOULD get £250000 a week', and 'Why £9000 a year is a fair price to pay for university education' are a few which come to mind. His arguments on both were in fact quite convincing.

    But my point is to try and think out of the box... you can do anything! It's also quite a good skill (particularly if you're planning on doing the EPQ or the RES Essay comps). In fact, have a look at some of the past RES essay winners (since these are ALL 2000 words and are based on a seemingly short, closed question).

    If you're interested, I'm thinking on doing my EPQ on relative poverty in the UK and hoping to really research the UK's relatively large inequalities of income / wealth and, what Paul Collier coined as 'poverty traps', particularly concerning education.
