@ddlljohn-- I think that depends on how powerful and important that country is for the global economy.
If the country experiencing the economic crisis is small and not very important for the global economy, then it's not going to make much of a difference, especially for the larger countries. But if the crisis is in a country like the United States or China, then, it's going to affect everyone.
I don't think that there is much that can be done about it. If a country's economy is strong, it will get through it, like the article said. If not, it will experience a lot of problems. This is the downside to the global market economy.
