Argumentative paper topic?? I really need help! :/?

QUESTION
Argumentative paper topic?? I really need help! :/?
I’m having trouble coming up with a good topic for an argumentative research paper.
I can write about whatever I want, but it needs to relate to money somehow.
Can anyone think of a good topic to write about?

I will pick best answer as soon as I get a good answer. :]
Thank you for reading this!

ANSWER
Well, I don’t know if this will help you at all but when I was in highschool we had an assignment to read a short by Jonathon Swift called “A Modest Proposal”. The assignment that followed was to write a similarly styled piece (very controversial and extreme to make a point) What Jonathon Swift did was make some ridiculous extreme suggestions on how society can “balance” itself making points about poverty and how the rich do nothing to truly help the poor and only continue to get richer while the poor starve and can’t afford to feed themselves.

I took that and wrote about how (and this is not me being racist) that in Canada, we pay the native indians simply for being the creed they are. I made points saying that at this point all races and creeds have suffered from some sort of hardship such as slavery etc and that if we are to hang out to something that happened to someone’s ancesters we should hang on to it for everyone instead of just one race or creed. My teacher received it well and I gained high marks for it. That may be a little controversial for your assignment since it is not specifically about a controversial extreme subject. You could maybe try writing on socialism versus capitoism.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socialism

so·cial·ism/ˈsōSHəˌlizəm/
Noun:

A political and economic theory of that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated…
(in Marxist theory) A transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.

cap·i·tal·ism/ˈkapətlˌizəm/
Noun:
An economic and political system in which a country’s trade and industry are controlled by private owners for profit.

You could even write about maybe the economical benefits of lethal injection or death penalty and special case euthanasia or something, but that, once again maybe a little bit too controversial for a topic that isn’t specifically about being controversial. You could write about how our taxes could be put to better use, such as a priority system or helping more needy countries/people/organizatons. You could make points about the homeless and how if we all pitched in a little bit, we could help to build and support mass community homes for these people or something. Or that on tax forms there could be a small space at the bottom of the tax forms that (out of the amount people are already paying no increase from what the currently spend on taxes) the people can choose where like…I don’t know ten percent of the taxes they are already paying go to a homeless shelter system or helping animal shelters or the medical system or into education or something so that the people have a n actual choice in where the money actually goes. And as I said very important that nobody pays more then they already are, too many people are struggling as is in my opinion wihtout adding more debt to their plates. I would say if you find an idea you like, try talking to your teacher ahead of time, write out some basic ideas of how your essay/assignment will go (rough draft) and a web chart and take these to show your teacher. Good luck on your project!
