    have to do with brute economics

    Hello, Teachers.

    I have several questions about the following sentence.
    Their desire for independence has to do with brute economics.
    What's the meaning of the expression 'brute economics' in the sentence?
    Is the meaning of the phrase 'have to do with sth' the same as 'have something to do with sth'?

    Thank you in advance.

    #1 Basically "raw economics" = economics at their most basic.

    #2 Yes, they are the same.

    Thank you for your explanation, Teacher Anglika.

    I'm still confused about 'brute economics' and 'raw economics'. What do they refer to? It would be nice if you could show me some details or examples.
