The recent Global Financial Crisis (GFC) has impacted the world to a significant extent terms of spending patterns of consumers as well as businesses. The GFC is a major economic force that influences both the emotional and mental behaviour of consumers.

The world economic crisis has caused an unexpectedly strong repercussions in the economies of all countries. "We are witnessing not only the economic downturn, but also a significant change in consumer behaviour". (Duthel, 2010) The European crisis has affected the entire world economy, contributed significantly to the behaviour of consumers changing their shopping habits and patterns. As the economic pressure caused by the reduction in wages, many consumers opted out from buying luxury goods. However, purchases of daily use products encourage customers to search in the shops offering lowest prices. Consumers are willing to take the time to find satisfying offers, or waiting to drop in price or appearance of the promotion.

European crisis had significant impact on customer behaviour in developed countries especially in the United Kingdom. Crisis as a special economic situation determines not only consumer behaviour with specific consequences for the financial situation of their households and unfavourable market conditions, but also by the effects of emotional and psychological.

In relation to the European debt crisis, to what extent do you agree or disagree with the subject: The European crisis has a significant impact on YOUR shopping behaviour in the UK?.


I have a 500 characters limit apparently:Looking at past events such as the economic crisis or any trend in the economy, you can see that behavior is affected by the people's income,which in turn affects their shopping habits. It's clear that shopping doesn't affect behavior, but behavior, driven by income, affects shopping.And since you cannot refute any of my arguments, let me say this: if you don't deny my arguments, then i win. always reserve space for rebuttal mate.

I have a feeling that the meaning of the word "debate" has been lost in the sands of time.
