Boost in the economy bring job opportunity
Boost of the economy bring job opportunity
I am always confused by this kind of problem, sometime may be like Boost for the economy
which one is right, and is there any good way to help me solve this kind of problem.
Thanks so much
Could you tell me why use "in" instead of "of", and how to judge which preposition should be the right one when the same problem come to me, or is there special book for preposition.
You could learn the easier prepositions:

But some you will just have to guess at until you learn them from experience.
There are several correct forms, but "economic boost bring job opportunity" is not one of them.
I did not correct the whole of the OP's sentence, since he was primarily interested in the preposition.
The form of the above sentence is incorrect because:
- it lacks correct morphology: "brings" would be necessary to make the verb correct.
- "economic boost" requires an article: "An economic boost", for example, or perhaps "Economic boosts"
- "job opportunity" would have to be "job opportunities" or "an opportunity for jobs" or "opportunities for jobs". "Job opportunity" as an abstract concept is possible, but is unlikely to be used in this sentence.
Some correct minimalist forms of this sentence would be:
Economic boosts bring job opportunities.
An economic boost brings job opportunities.
But a good English rendition (without using a preposition) would be better written as:
An economic boost would bring increased job opportunities.
Economic boosts generally bring an increase in job opportunities.
