What is the economy?
The economy is about money and about working and doing business to earn money. It is also about how we manage and use the money we earn. This involves buying, selling, lending, saving and growing our money.

What is an economic crisis?
The world-wide economic crisis, or economic slowdown, started when governments allowed their banks and other financial institutions to lend out more money than they could afford. As a result, they got too deep into debt. They also gave too much credit to clients who could not afford to pay it back. So their clients also got too deep into debt. This means there is less buying, selling and lending. The economic crisis is leading to people losing their jobs.
