Synonyms of "Crisis" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre The crisis can affect the economy. e The crisis can have an effect on the economy. ?
A: Hi there!

The difference between both sentences are the word usage of "Affect" and "Effect".

"Affect", (a verb), meaning to influence or have an IMPACT ON SOMETHING.
Example Sentence:
— "The cold weather AFFECTED the crops."

"Effect", (a noun), is the RESULT of BEING AFFECTED BY something.
Example Sentence:
— "The overall EFFECT was surprising."

"the crisis can affect the economy" simply means that, "the crisis can CAUSE SOMETHING TO the economy."
"the crisis can have an effect on the economy" simply means that, "The crisis is the OVERALL RESULT of THE ECONOMY being AFFECTED."

Other questions about "Crisis"

Q: Bring about a crisis in the institution of the traditional classical concert.

What does institution mean ? Is it like custom?
A: It can mean an organization established for a specific purpose (e.g. a college could be called “an academic institution”). However, in this context it seems more like the second definition from Google, which is “an established law or practice”, like “the institution of marriage”. In this case, it’s not a literal organization, but it is a tradition or custom that is very ingrained in a particular society. So you’re exactly right, but the word has two main definitions. I hope this helps!
