Honduran crisis brings economic hardship for neighbors

According to this article, countries bordering and near Honduras have suffered greatly in the economic sector because of the instability in Honduras. Border closures and curfews have made it difficult to transport goods to trade partners and for some to get to work if they work in the neighboring countries. The article just shows how interdependent the countries in Latin America are and how much one country's insecurity will cause them all hardship. The only positive outlook is that the other Central American countries will add pressure on both Micheletti and Zelaya to start negotiations, but it is sad that all of these people who have no say in the conflict cannot continue their daily lives and provide for their families.
