The business cycle:  The business cycle Chapter 6-2 The Business Cycle:  The Business Cycle The business cycle is the short-run alternation between economic downturns and economic upturns. A depression is a very deep and prolonged downturn. Recessions are periods of economic downturns when output and employment are falling. Expansions, sometimes called recoveries, are periods of economic upturns when output and employment are rising. How are recessions and expansions defined?:  How are recessions and expansions defined? There is no exact definition! Two consecutive quarters (6months) of falling/rising Ag Output rule is used This is to prevent misclassifying hiccups in the economy as recession or expansion. FOR INQUIRING MINDS: Defining Recessions and Expansions :  FOR INQUIRING MINDS: Defining Recessions and Expansions In many countries, economists adopt the rule that a recession is a period of at least 6 months, or two quarters, during which aggregate output falls.  sometimes too strict In the United States, the task of determining when a recession begins and ends is assigned to an independent panel of experts at the National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER). This panel looks at a number of economic indicators, with the main focus on employment and production, but ultimately the panel makes a judgment call.  sometimes controversial Slide5:  What happens during a business cycle, and what can be done about it? the effects of recessions and expansions on unemployment; the effects on aggregate output; and the possible role of government policy. The Business Cycle Employment and Unemployment :  Employment and Unemployment Employment is the number of people working in the economy. Unemployment is the number of people who are actively looking for work but aren’t currently employed. The labor force is equal to the sum of employment and unemployment. Employment and Unemployment:  Employment and Unemployment Discouraged workers are non-working people who are capable of working but are not actively looking for a job. Underemployment is the number of people who work during a recession but receive lower wages than they would during an expansion due to smaller number of hours worked, lower-paying jobs, or both. The unemployment rate is the ratio of the number of people unemployed to the total number of people in the labor force, either currently working or looking for jobs. Underemployment:  Underemployment Slide9:  The Unemployment Rate and Recessions Since 1948 The Effects of Recessions and Expansions on Unemployment and Aggregate Output::  The Effects of Recessions and Expansions on Unemployment and Aggregate Output: In general, the unemployment rate rises during recessions and falls during expansions. It moves in the direction opposite to aggregate output, which falls during recessions and rises during expansions. What is this Aggregate Output?:  What is this Aggregate Output? Real GDP is the actual number used to measure Aggregate Output Aggregate Output rise during Aggregate Output falls during Expansion Recession Slide12:  Growth in Aggregate Output, 1948–2004 Real GDP is a measure of aggregate output, the output of the economy as a whole.

The second type of stabilization policy is fiscal policy, changes in tax policy or government spending, or both.
