Economic Collapse en español

I suppose things on the economic front have been improving over the last few weeks and months, but I’m having a pessimistic day for some reason–probably from listening to too much talk radio. However, nothing improves the mood like looking into some new Spanish vocabulary!


Bolsa : stock market :: economía :: economy :: desempleo/paro :: unemployment

El índice de desempleo se sitúa en el 10 por ciento. : The unemployment rate stands at 10 percent.

el desastre : disaster :: banco : bank :: efectivo : cash

No tengo un centavo. :: I’m penniless.


vivienda : housing :: mercado de la vivienda :: housing market :: sin vivienda : homeless

el cartón : cardboard :: casa de cartón :: cardboard house :: vagabundo/a :: hobo
