The Balkans crisis
The political issues and economic issues are tied together. The major powers in Europe were all looking to expand and acquire as many colonies as they could. This was especially true in the Balkans, with several countries trying to control the area.

Prior to and following the outbreak of the First World War, the Balkans were considered to be the "powder keg of Europe." This is due to the overlapping alliances of the strongest nations and the volatility in that particular region. One significant action could, and, with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, did, ignite a world war.
This offset the balance of power in the Balkans. Before the annexation of Bosnia, Russia, the Ottomans, and Austria-Hungary were the great powers in the region that controlled the states.
