Could you explain more about why an economic crisis is related so closely to "falta de harina o brete"?

Both the U.S. and Costa Rica agree that an economic crisis involves bankruptcy, poverty, and unemployment. Costa Rica differed in the fact that someone responded with an agricultural issue--"falta de harina". The answers from the U.S. differed in the fact that many associated the idea of an economic crisis with President Obama and the current recession.

In America the the economic crisis is associated with the President and the current recession that we are faced with. In Costa Rica they associated an economic crisis with agricultural.

Both cultures agree that it is a bad thing and involved negative ideas such as poverty, unemployment, ect.


Why do you associate economic crisis with agriculture?

"Brete" significa trabajo.

"Falta de harina" es no tener suficiente dinero, esta relacionado con crisis economica por la falta de trabajos por consecuente no hay dinero y provoca pobreza

si no hay produccion en el campo de la agricultura no se va ha ver el dinero logicamente
