Business cycle dating in europe

If European countries used similar criteria to those used in the US for determining economic cycles, the Great Recession in many of them would quite possibly be considered an ongoing five-year slump.Such measurement issues may sound like a matter of minor technical details, but they can have significant real-world implications.Finally, based on the results of the different methods, a consensus business cycle chronology for the German economy is suggested.I gratefully acknowledge comments and suggestions from Klaus Wälde and two anonymous referees.As the British know all too well, their economy since the low point of mid-2009 has not yet climbed even halfway out of the post-crisis hole: GDP is still almost 4% below its previous peak.If European countries used similar criteria to those used in the United States for determining economic cycles, the Great Recession in Britain would quite possibly not have been declared over in the first place.

The right question is not whether there have been double (or triple) dips; the question is whether there has been one big recession all along.
