Definition of Economic Crisis

Sometimes it stems from the greed from financial institutions, lenders etc…, which creates a depression or setback in the economy. Then you have things going on such a long term and continuous increase in unemployment, slow growth in economic activity, a decline in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for 2 or more consecutive quarters, continuous and steady low prices, low levels of trade and investments.
If these phenomena continue over a long, steady period of time the situation is considered a recession, depression or economic crisis.

Economic Crisis versus Financial Crisis

Thank you for this good definition. I an still a bit confused about the difference between an economic crisis and a financial crisis. Especially their causes.
