Needing help with my EE topic (Economics)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've been struggling with EE topics for several weeks now. The one I currently have in mind is something like "To what extent has 'The Hobbit" impacted New Zealand's film/tourism (choose one) industry?"

Can anyone come up with a better way to phrase this question?

Which industry should I choose?

Any other ideas for my Economics EE?

Cheers!

I'd think the tourism industry would be a better choice to do, as I feel that the impacts there are clearer, easily separable from the whole, and more economically relevant as opposed to looking to its effects in the local cinematography and film industry, which would be harder to analyze the trends of in my opinion. I feel your question is phrased well; however, I'm not qualified to pass judgement upon that.

Good luck!

I think that you are running into a trap choosing "The Hobbit" as the movie of focus as it is very new. As a result, you might not be able to even see the results in official data (or whatever else data you are using). What about using the Lord of the Rings trilogy instead? It is also filmed in New Zealand and has a lot of beautiful nature in it, which might have boosted tourism.

I would also say that I can believe you will run into a lot of problems with this EE as the increase/decrease in tourism (if there is any) might be attributed to other things as well. Just look at the economic downturn in Europe, that might have caused less Europeans going to New Zealand while at the other hand the economic boom and growth of the middle class in Asia might have caused an increase in the tourism to New Zealand.
