Describe a crisis in your country

(Note: This sample is only to be taken as a reference)

 

If I were to pick a crisis to talk about, it would no doubt be the financial crisis that’s wreaking havoc worldwide. Not a country left untouched. Mine included.

 

The repercussions are deep and wide-ranging. Practically every sector in the economy has felt the effects one way or the other. Some harder than most.

 

China, the 3rd largest economy in the world, has had to deal with falling exports and imports, rising tide of unemployment among both migrant workers and fresh graduates and last but definitely not the least, unprecedented number of business closures. It’s a vicious cycle that’s not going to end anytime soon.

 

What does this all mean for the common person like me? Let me put this in a simplistic way. If I am a graduate, I can expect NO jobs for the foreseeable future. If I am a business owner, I had better start planning who to lay off next. If I am a salaried worker, I had better start worrying my job security and probably start writing my resume. It goes on and on and on…. The point is - this crisis hits everyone, if not now, then surely later. The scary part is when?

 

I have absolutely no idea how to stem this crisis. I don’t even know how this mess even started! Although there’s a certain superpower I could point the finger at as the cause of this nightmare. But anyway, it’s not my job…I’m not going to go into that.

 

I really feel for those who had to bear the brunt before me but for now, I count myself as one of the lucky few who hasn’t had to make any changes to my lifestyle.
