and explain your opinion of it.

Example answers:
Well, right at present, whenever you turn on the TV or surf the Internet, you will inevitably see a term "economic risk" appearing repeatedly. It originated last year in America and now is affecting the whole world.

One of the most significant influences it has exerted on our life is the depression in real estate industry. On the one hand, real estate companies have a lot of apartments and flats for sale. Contrastingly, those who are in an urgent need for houses can not afford them.

Another industry which is also suffering from this economic crisis is stock industry. People lose money in it due to the steady decrease in the price of stock. Consequently, people panic for the sake of it.

In addition, the financial crisis also gives rise to the increase in the unempoyment rate. A lot of factories cut down on their work forces in order to survive this crisis.

In my point of view, all the governments and individuals should make joint efforts to solve the problem. Our government has been encouraging people to spend money in order to promote the economic development. But as an individual, I guess the best policy is to save enough money and try to develop an economical lifestyle.
