What's the difference between an embargo and a boycott ? Thanks.
A boycott is when a group of people and/or businesses refuse to buy certain products.
An embargo is sort of a boycott of one country by another country.
The United States has a trade embargo against Cuba.
African-American citizens of Montgomery, Alabama refused to use mass transit during the Montgomery Bus Boycott in protest of the system's racial discrimination.
Thank you. It's crystal clear !
