Those are very general subjects, so there are literally hundreds of research areas and directions for you to choose from.  You might consider Tax Accounting and how to avoid or survive an audit by the IRS.  You could write about home finance and how most families deal with debt.  The Finance Reform Act currently making its way through Congress affects the banking industry as well as personal finance and business accounting, so there are plenty of possibilities to pursue in that one topic alone.  As a final suggestion, consider writing about the changes in the home mortgage market, why it is in such decline, and what may possibly revive that sector of the economy, or how ordinary citizens can take advantage of current rates and opportunities in that area.

I think in today's economics a good research topic would be in the area of home mortgages. There is a lot of information out there and you could go several different ways with your research.

It does seem as if the abuses of power in these fields would be a timely and researchable topic.  the mortgage crisis, Wall Street, Small Business Administration...literally anything connected to the economic crash in the fall of 2008 (and anything since then, as well) would be interesting as well as insightful as you get ready to leave the world of education.
