Develop a Keyword Strategy

Keywords

As you search background information, think about the narrower ways researchers talk about the economic factors you may need to consider. 

What economic issues are particularly important to your country?

Example:

Country (other names or spellings?) Economic issues to investigate Narrower aspects and questions
Venezuela GDP Per capita (PPP)
  industries (agriculture, crude oil...) import partners
  labor force women; aging labor force
  poverty rural vs. urban
  public debt China; Russia
  inflation rate  

Now, launch this into a database search (this is a specific search - you can be a little broader to start):

venezuela and debt and (china or russia) in academic search complete
