must wait to get it.

2.
In August 2007, a sharp downturn in the U.S. housing market reduced the income of
many who worked in the home construction industry. A Wall Street Journal news
article reported that Wal-Mart’s wire-transfer business was likely to suffer
because many construction workers are Hispanics who regularly send part of
their wages back to relatives in their home countries via Wal-Mart. With this
information, use one of the principles of economy-wide interaction to trace a
chain of links that explains how reduced spending for U.S. home purchases is
likely to affect the performance of the Mexican economy.

3. During the Great Depression, food was
left to rot in the fields or fields that had once been actively cultivated were
left fallow. Use one of the principles of economy-wide interaction to explain
how this could have occurred.
