Topics for supervision

Bachelor theses

(I supervise only theses written in English)

Bankruptcy
Soft budget constraint.
The economic analysis of Czech Fund PGRLF (=Podpůrný a garanční rolnický a lesnický fond).
Export credit support (for example Czech institutions EGAP, CEB).
The economic analysis of alcoholic beverages and tobacco industries (the Czech Family Budget Data are available, the software code for analysis is available too).
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.
