Paper Topic help

Postby mac5155 on Fri Nov 30, 2012 10:26 am

I have to write a paper on "the ten events of the last decade that most changed the business environment"... Since it's 2012, and I want to include the obvious 9/11, I'm stretching it and going back to 2000. Any suggestions? Here's what I've come up with thus far..

9/11
2008 financial / housing crisis
internet and social media
Oil prices
Enron/Lehman
G20
Iraq/Afghan wars
Natural Gas exploration
Obama's election (maybe I dont want to include this due to my liberal professor and my conservative views...)
Invention of Smartphones

any other ideas?

If he's a liberal, then he'll likely enjoy you discussing the Bush tax cuts

how about the growing questions of the cost/benefits of the MBA? That would probably be a hit with your professor

you should just go for broke and say it's all the fault of the minorities.

I feel like 10 events in 12 years may result in me overblowing some non-important topics.

Should stretch it to 1999. That's when the economy was placed into a blender, spinning on high, that was super-heated and rocket-propelled at the same time into a turbine jet engine. Then you can appear unbiased as it was Clinton and the Republicans that did it. You'll have a huge range of dogcrap to discuss and how it was really the single most destructive thing to our up-until-2008 "pretty stable fiat economy."

BLAM.

IF you could get that book out of the library it would help give you details. It talks about a lot of technical innovations and how they're being applied in business. (I remember a big section about some of the things Wal Mart was doing)

Assuming that you have to write about these ten things you pick and not just list them.

If the professor is any good he won't mind your conservative leanings I would hope think.
