CRISIS MANAGEMENT!!

Hello!!
In my opinion the crisis is because of the leaders of the countries.
They don't realize that this concerns everybody.
I hope that it will be solved soon.

CRISIS MANAGEMENT!
hi! i'm going to talk about the crisis management..:
The international crisis is bad for the countries and for the peeople.The presidents of the countries have to get and agreement to solve it.
The banks are closing for this fault and the people are losing their money.

cristina avila 4ºA said...

Crisis management

The international crisis is the problem in the world and is affecting banks first. At the moment the banks have got red numbers so they close or joing other banks.

ALBA said...

CRISIS MANAGEMENT

This crisis is affecting
our lives very much. A lot of people have got not work and the high prices are very tall.This problem is very important for the people and the banks.

kolja said...

In the international crisis some banks have very high debts, so other banks buy this "in debt banks".
I think that if this continues there's going to be only one big bank all over the world.

Lucia 4A said...

Crisis Managemen is very important in EE.UU,there are a lot of dismissals,many factories
close,there are a lot of strikes and demonstrations.
The mortgages go up a lot,but the wage do not go up at all,and the prices also get higher and higher.

alba alvarez said...

CRISIS MANAGEMENT

I'm going to talk about the crisis
management and the problems that causede in my family.

I think that the crisis was very serious becouse this affects the world.

In my family we do some things to salve the crisis, we use less water and we recicle more than in the past.

In my country the crisis doesn't affect much now but if the thing continue, the crisis will affect us all.

CRISIS MANAGEMENT.

Hi,I know that the crisis is something that is on Tv nowadays.

I know that it's affecting our countries because the prices the bills etc.. are higher but the salaries are the same.Some companies are firing employees so people are starting not to waste a lot.
There are a lot of people that are losing their houses and cars because they can't pay for it and have only enough money to eat.

In my family,my parents think that we waste a lot of water and light,and I and my brother by a lot of stupid things.

Finally,it's so sad but all the people have to afford it.
by!
