Reference resources are a valuable tool when starting a search for a topic for a term paper. Look at bibliographies, encyclopedias, dictionaries and biographies dedicated to the subject of business for ideas.
For example, the index in the Encyclopedia of the Industrial Revolution in America (available in print in the Rose Hill and Westchester campus libraries under call number HC105.O45 2002) suggests topics such as the antitrust movement, Fair Labor Standards Act, Haymarket riot among others.
Credo Reference provides access to encyclopedias and dictionaries of business.
