World War I had a tremendous impact on the Russian economy. Prices skyrocketed due to the expenses of Russian efforts and there was a paucity of food. There was a lack of sufficient transportation, which caused much of the food to spoil because it could not be delivered quickly. These conditions led to chaos and disorder in Petrograd (St. Petersburg), creating an environment in which people became unhappy, and as a result, desired change. This created conditions that led in part to the February Revolution. Russia in the early 20th century to today, I find that many countries are experiencing the same sort of chaos due a poor economy. According to the Los Angeles Times, 26.02% of people inhabiting Spain are unemployed, which is approximately 5.9 million people who do not have jobs. This is a higher unemployment rate than during the Great Depression in the United States. Because there are minimal employment opportunities in Spain, Spaniards are leaving the country to find work and prosper elsewhere. Obviously, people are not happy. Another example is Greece, where, according to BBC news, 26.8% of people are unemployed. Could this economic unrest in either Spain or Greece lead to a revolution? What do you think will be the reaction to this economic hardship?
