voluminous research

Observe a phenomenon in the world that may seem quizzical, paradoxical, or just plain weird and explain it using economic theory, economic naturalist

You are not expected to do voluminous research in support of your argument, although a relevant theory should be examined. It makes no difference whether your topic is ‘important’, but try, as best you can, to choose something interesting! A really successful presentation is one that begins with a really interesting question
